  1. Disconnect the battery ground cable.
  2. Depending on the year and model remove the wiper/washer and fog lamp switch knob if they will interfere with the headlight switch knob removal. Check the switch body (behind dash, see Step 3) for a release button. Press in on the button and remove the knob and shaft assembly. If not equipped with a release button, a hook tool may be necessary for knob removal.
  3. Remove the steering column shrouds and cluster panel finish panel if they interfere with the required clearance for working behind the dash.
  4. Unscrew the switch mounting nut from the front of the dash. Remove the switch from the back of the dash and disconnect the wiring harness.
  5. Install in reverse order.
Good luck.....

1985 Ford f150 headlights won't come on when you pull switch ..


Its the head lite switch its a vary complex switch controls a lot of fuctions but vary well made .
I just did mine .I was supprised I got it for 17.00 $ new although I know parts people .
The way to get at it is remove the bolts holding the fuse box push it back .Then you can reach up to the switch .The trick about it their is a button on the side of it push it and the and the knob and shaft pulls out the front of the switch then you can remove the trim and unbolt the switch drop it and disconnect the connecter .
Y ou don't need to push the button to install the shaft it will click in just make sure the reiostat and reluctor are lined up on the switch before you bolt the switch mount bolts because the trim has to go back on before the shaft is installed .
