#45 of 437 auto headlights

I have a 2000 Gmc Sonoma SLS 3 door stepside. My question is what would cause the lights to just turn themselves off. I live in southern ca and do a lot of canyon driving and on a couple of occasions my lights just turned off. I was able to turn them back on manually, but I do not need them to go off into a dark corner. any advice could help.

#47 of 437 95 Sonoma electrical problem? NEED HELP!
Mar 14, 2007 (4:17 pm)
Okay so I did some major work on my Sonoma where I had to disconnect my harnesses. Well I was putting everything back together the way it was. Everything is grounded and hooked up, but when I went to start it all I get is the little black boxes on the firewall making like this loud whining noise. I have power to everything, but the fuel pump does not prime and the truck acts like it is dead even though power is running through headlights and everything.
Can someone please help? I do not know where to start with this one. Anyone had this problem maybe with the boxes making this loud noise? Truck worked fine before I did the work..

My dash lights went out after starting the vehicle one very cold night. I heard a click from under the dash when they went out. I checked the fuses and all of the dash light bulbs and they are fine.
#51 of 437 bubbling sound after I turn off my 99 s-10
Apr 20, 2007 (8:12 pm)
Recently my truck has been making a bubbling sound that I can hear from what I think is behind the dash. Initially I thought maybe its the coolant or the radiator? took it to the dealership and they said thats just what these trucks do after so many years because of a part settling? and that the newer trucks don't make this sound because of a electronic remedy that was made as an improvement... sound like a familiar experience?
Also my factory radio will not illuminate.
And..... now my reverse back up lights will not work?

I'm going to buy a '99 Sonoma with the dash lights out. Did you find out how to fix it? Could there be an inline fuse or a relay stuck open?
