If you pull the trim off around the cluster the light switch will be easy to access, pull the lower trim off below the cluster trim there are screws there, once they are out the rest is easy.

Hi I have a 2000 Ford Ranger and the air bag light is flashing


The light (on the key switch) that indicates whether the passenger airbag is on or off is, more than likely, burned out. You can either replace the whole switch ($$$) or you can take it apart and solder a new led into the circuit board. You can get the bulb at radio shack (make sure it is 12v). Good Luck!

Overdrive light blinking


Have a mechanic check for loose wires going to the transmission. Usually when the OD light blicks it's because there is something wrong with the transmission. Have your transmission fluid checked. If it appears brown, dark, or smells burnt have it and the transmission filter replaced immediately. It may also be that you have a leak in the transmission and need to add transmission fluid so that it's at the right level.

Tail lights not working


THE SOLUTION WAS THE HEADLIGHT SWITCH. IT TURNS OUT THIS IS A COMMON PROBLEM ON THIS PARTICULAR MODEL. THE BROWN WIRE USUALLY BURNS UP. CHECK ALL WIRES AND CONTACTS BEHIND HEADLIGHT SWITCH. TO PULL SWITCH, THERE IS A RELEASE BUTTON ON THE BACK SIDE OF THE SWITCH. PRESS THAT BUTTON AND IT WILL REALES THE PLUNGER. PULL THE PLUNGER ALL THE WAY OUT AND YOU WILL BE ABLE TO PULL THE HEADLIGHT SWICH OUT. i JUST REPAIRED BROWN WIRE AND CLEANED CONTACT. VOILA.. RUNNING LIGHTS ARE NOW ON. THAT RELEASE BUTTON ON THE SWITCH IS A BOOG TO GET TO THO. GOOD LUCK

The only thing that all of your problems have in common is the light switch and the dash wiring harness. The stereo is linked to the light switch because of it's illumination feature' You need to test the light switch with a test light by probing the wires at it's plug.
