Replacing on/off headlight switch on dashboard

Back a couple years ago, the on/off switch for the headlights in my 00 Expedition broke off. I glued it back on, but it fell off again the other day and the plastic supports behind it are making it difficult to glue it back on again. I can purchase the replacement package at a junkyard for $75. I was wondering if anyone had any instructions on how to do this?

How to find an electrical disturbance in 1998 ford expedition


Normally this condition is the result of a poor body ground connection. Testing for this can be deceiving. At the static(nothing on) condition, testing can show a good ground. However when a circuit is excited, it has a determined resistance and a set current flow. If the ground connection to this or a branch circuit is loose, corroded, or broken wire. This will allow just enough connection to show as being good, but not good enough to complete the circuit with the required amount of connection when energized.

How to pinpoint and fix electrical disturbance in 1998 expedition?


Could be the ignition switch itself. Under the hood where all the wires go into the fusebox in the cab is a good pkace to start. You need to take the bolt/nut off and pull the box and wires apart. I have seen fuse blocks heavily corroded and cause problems as you are haveing. Also could be the ecm (aka)computer in your car is going bad. You can get a remanufactured one cheap. And it is simple and strait forward

Cruise turns off when we roll down the windows


Strange electrical problems can sometimes be attributed to a bad ignition switch. The battery should also be load tested, especially if it is more than 4 - 5 years old.

Headlights don't work why?


Test the headlight switch as follows.
  • Move your car to a dark area, such as waiting until night or moving to a dark garage, to test your headlight switch.
  • 2Turn on your car, so you can see your dashboard lights. Note whether some of your dashboard lights fail to illuminate.


    • 3
  • Turn on your car's headlights. Note whether your car's headlights illuminate.
  • 4Press the high beam lever to activate your high beams. Note whether your high beams activate.
  • 5Put your car in "Park." Move to the back of the car. Note whether your parking lights are illuminated.
  • 6View any remaining driving lights, such as lights above the license plate. Note whether these lights come on.
    If more than one set of lights does not activate when you turn on the lights, you may need to replace your headlight switch. If only one set of lights does not turn on, try replacing the lightbulbs in that set and then retesting your car. If the lights still do not illuminate, you may need to replace your headlight switch.

    I own a 1999 Buick Regal GSE with 94K miles. I recently noticed that my dashboard lights sometimes come on, and sometimes don't. Sometimes, during the day, if my dashboard lights are on, and I pull out...


    In the 99 Regal, the headlamp switch is also the dimmer switch for the instrument cluster.
    With the headlights on, try rotating the switch to bring up the "nighttime" intensity.
    If the headlight switch has a pre-set dimming function for the instrument cluster lighting (in other words, not adjustible by rotating the knob), then
    replacement of the headlight switch would be the only way to fix the instrument cluster lighting problem.
    See Wiring Schematic below.

    Headlights go off and on while engine is on or off


    I would start by checking/cleaning the connections in the headlight circuit. Poor connections will create resistance in the circuit, causing heat which can melt wiring and connectors. Hope this helps!
