If just the silver bezel broke you can buy a new one and it snaps on like the other one did. So that way you don't have to replace the whole thing, but if the switch itself broke, then you'll have to buy a new one. Hope it helped!

Head lights wont turn off 06 h3 hummer


If you pull the headlamp relay in under hood fuse box, that should kill the headlamps until you figure out the problem? I don't know if relay could be faulty? I'd want to check relay wiring circuit for ground?
Your bcm grounds the coil side of headlamp relay in order to energize. I'm not saying bcm has a problem? The bcm receives input from headlamp/dimmer switch telling it the headlamp relay should be grounded. You might check for bcm or communication trouble codes.

Why aren't parking lights working?


Park lamp fuse 20amp located in the under hood fuse box .DRL control module
Daytime Running Lamps (DRL) Control Module
Right of the steering column, behind the IP
Park, Sidemarker, Tail and License Lamps
Voltage is applied continuously to the PARK fuse to the headlamp and the instrument panel (IP) lamp dimmer switch through CKT 1340.
When the headlamp and the (IP) lamp dimmer switch is in the PARK or HEAD position, voltage is applied to CKT 9 thus activating the following lamps:
• The park lamps
• The side marker lamps
• The tail lamps
• The license lamps
The park/turn lamps are the only lamps that do not activate yet receive a current from CKT 9. The park/turn lamps do not activate because the voltage drop across the front side marker lamps is much higher than that across the turn lamp filaments Step

Oldsmobile intrigue problems


The switch is bad >
Each headlamp is individually fused so that battery voltage is applied to the individual lamps at all times through circuit 1640 for the LH headlamps and through circuit 1740 for the RH headlamps. When the headlamp switch is in HEAD, the ground is applied directly to headlamp switch through circuit 1750. When the headlamp switch is placed in LOW, ground is applied to the low beam headlamps through circuit 1201. When the headlamp switch is placed in HIGH, ground is applied to the high beam lamps and to the high beam indicator through circuit 1200. The high beam indicator is fused so that battery voltage is applied at all times through circuit 640.

The box you hear the click in is the daytime running lights control module .
