Having problems with your Chevrolet Silverado 1500 ?

My battery went dead in my 1999 Chevy Silverado 1500 I put the battery charger on and I noticed the dome light was on and the headlights where on so I unhooked the battery and charged it hooked it back up and the lights and dome light where on and the key was not in the key switch . I could start the truck but when I turned it off the head lights and done light will not go off I let it like that for over 1 hour the o unhooked the battery can you tell me how to fix this ?

Answers :

It's not required to have the key in the ignition for either the dome lights or headlights to be on unless of course you mean the daytime running lights. be that as it may, locate the head light relay in the engine compartment fuse panel near the battery and replace it. this should resolve the issue. the dome light could be an issue with another relay this time located in the interior fuse panel
\015\012they may possibly be on the same circuit so replacing the relay in the engine compartment may fix the dome light issue
I can tell you the fault but i cant tell you where the component is situated that you need to change ,the problem is the relay that holds the lights on when you park in the garage to give you time to find your keys or open the internal door.Now somewhere is a relay in the box where the rest of them are .to find it re-connect the battery and pull the relays out one at a time till the lights go off then you know what one to buy.They have a built in timer,when the car is used the relays stays open ,but when the power is shut off the contacts close leaving the lights on till the timer shuts them off .Sorry i cant help with where the offending relay is but we dont have this car here in spain so i have never worked on one
