I had the same problem. the switch broke. So i took apart the whole steering wheel until i looked under the dash near the pedals. if you look under the dash then you will find that there is a small white square looking thing with rod connected to it. thats the one you want to change. hope this helps

you could have a dimmer switch problem that may need an adjustment or replacement.do you hear the switch click when you try to change from high to low,if not than these could be the problem.the switch is located on the top of the steering colume and the base of the colume under the dash.if you work the dimmer switch on the colume and put your hand on the colume under the dash you should be able to feel the rod that pushes on the switch.follow the rod down and it will go to the dimmer switch.there are 2 5/16 bolts that hold it in place that if you loosen them and push the switch up towards the steering wheel it will move it so the rod won`t have to move as far to change from low to high.if this is not the problem and you don`t hear a click then its usually a switch replacement.

There should be a button inside the column that you push in, or a bolt to remove, been awhile since I did one. You may need to have the key in the lock cylinder and turn the lock cylinder.

I was trying to reconnect the headlight dimmer switch because the headlights were stuck on bright and somehow disconnected the push rod that runs down the steering colum, now only the passenger headlight...


The push rod operates a slide switch with many contacts/circuits. If the rod is not properly registered in the slide switch all kinds of faults could appear.

First, I would make sure the push rod is properly installed.

If you have a multimeter, you can check the headlight for continuity to see if it's blown. There's no particular reason, though, that working on the pushrod/slide switch would blow the headlight.

I removed the tilt steering colum housing to instal a new cruise


The plastic piece goes between the steel rod and cruise/wiper lever. You will have to remove the wheel and the upper bearing housing to get it back where it goes. If you put some wheel bearing grease on it then it will stay in place during reassembly.. Good Luck

1964 El Camino headlight problem


Do you have high power globes fitted more than 65W.
If so you will need a relay to supply H/Lamps as the original headlamp switch has built in circuit breaker only good for about 15Amp
