Check IP fuse panel. Fuse # 7 HDLP SW 10 amp, feeds power to headlight switch.

I had not checked to fuse (the most simple of all things to inspect) so I checked per your advice. Unfortunately the fuse was in good use. I will have to move on to the next step whatever that is.
I am, however, grateful for your suggestion. I am fishing for answers on this one before I have to take it to the shop and have them inspect what I should have inspected beforehand.

Dude: I've got the same problem. My parking brake doesn't work at all. In looking through a Haynes guide at a "typical" headlight wiring diagram with DRL I found that there's a ground to the left headlight that is open if it senses the parking brake is on [which I guess mine is sensing]. Also, if I push the parking brake down and let it thwack back up that generally turns on my headlights. An electrician told me to double click on the dome override and that that might reset the headlights. Didn't work for me. Good luck

my s- 10 lights will not work at all. I took the vehicle to a mechanic and was told it was a sensor but didn't know the location of the light sensor. Is there a diagram as to where all the sensors are located??? I have already checked all the fuses also.

After an hour of trouble shooting along with a new fuse and the correct bulb, it was back to normal.

It's more than the light sensor, the switch overrides the sensor.

I have a 2000 S10 and had the torque converter replaced by a transmission shop. After it was fixed and I was on my way home, I had driven it about 10 miles when I noticed on the instrument panel the LED backlit was not on for "D". I do have the backlit when it is in "P, R & N", but not in "D, 3, 2, 1". I am sure it was working fine before I took it to them, and I called the transmission shop and asked about this. They stated they noticed it did not light up when they test drove after replacing torque conv. and the module is plugged in and it shifts great, just no indicatior. They have no idea what could be wrong. Anyone have an idea. The odometer is LED and works fine.
