Q: Where is the relay switch for the tail lights located? on 2006 Chevrolet Aveo

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
My tail lights are out and my dashboard lights are out. I checked the fuses and they are all good so I'm looking for the relay switch to test it and see if that is the problem. All other lights are working fine.

Most likely cause is a bad dimmer switch which will need replaced. Check to make sure no wires are burnt on the ends but it sounds like the dimmer switch.
Yes, they are connected to the same switch. Make sure there are no burnt wires on the pigtail.
The dimmer switch may be okay then but the wires leading to it may need replacement instead. Have to find out which one.
There is no relay switch for the tail lights on the car. It is more than likely the battery needs to be replaced as well as the light bulbs in the tail lights need to be replaced too. The battery for sure though. That happened to me 2 years ago and before that 6 years earlier.

Take it to a dealer or gas station and they will replace the battery.
