Do you mean the headlights are not working? Replace the Dimmer switch.

Light swith is in off postion for all lights, but park lamps, front side markers and dash light are on. All other lights are out.

You probably have a bad switch or the wiring is not hooked up correctly at the switch.

If you turn the headlight switch on (pulled all the way out) everything is on including the park lamps. Should the park lamps go out when the headlights go on?

There was a thread about this awhile back......On certain years and models the parking lights are suppose to go out. This is what I read......I am not sure, because on my 67 they remain on when the headlights are on.

Do a search in this forum on that same problem for more answers.

Hello, Did this just happen, or did you have the harness out of the car?? The parking lights are on with the headlights when turned on!

This is new (just happened) It has to be the switch that is bad. I will check my other 68 to see if park lights go out when headlights go on. Thanks for the help on this.
