1999 Chevrolet Astro ProblemsInstrument Panel Lights Flickering and Exterior Lights Intermittent
The headlight switch used on the Chevrolet Astro is known to fail through normal operation. Since the headlight switch is also integrated into the interior lights, a malfunctioning switch can cause issues with interior lights as well.
- Symptoms of a failed headlight switch include:
- Headlights and taillights failing to turn on or off
- Interior lights flicker, or fail to turn on or off
- Gauge cluster lighting off or flickering with headlights on
- Parking light malfunctions
This issue is well known with General Motors Trucks and SUVs, and is solved by testing and, if needed, replacing the headlight/dimmer switch. Bad grounding wires at the tail-lights, and dirty/corroded tow package wires can also lead to some of these issues.
Power brake systems using "hydro-boost" may leak power steering fluid from the hydro-boost unit located behind the brake master cylinder. Replacement of the hydro-boost unit is the common repair to correct this concern.

We Don't do anything to try to fix it, it turns on by its self. This started about a month ago. It tries to start but it doesn't, engine shakes after I stop turning the key. Thank you
It will allow me program any one of my three remotes, but when I try to program a second remote, it will not work. I am at a loss as to why I can't program my other remotes.
