Re: does everyone know about the dome override?????

I've got a '98 SLT with the auto lights and the dome trick doesn't work on mine. I think it's only for DRL's and not for the auto lights.

Re: does everyone know about the dome override?????

I think its a 2000 and up feature, for the s series at least. Neither my girlfriends 99 jimmy or my friends 99 blazer do it, or my 98 s10. My dads 99 silverado has the feature though. I wish more people knew about it at boat launches, there is so many newer chevys that can so easily disable the headlights, just people don't know the trick, it would be nice to launch in the dark and not be blinded by the next guy all the time.

The trick will disable both the DRL and AHL, pretty much makes the lights old school (have to turn a knob) for that trip.

Re: does everyone know about the dome override?????

ya my 98 doesn't have it I think BillsDuster is right. But you can always run the ebrake on click and just use the switch.
