Question about Ford Bronco II
The headlight switch on my Bronco II went out so I removed the old one only to find the plastic piece connecting it to the wires had been fried as well. I can't figure out how to remove the wiring from the plastic piece to put the new one in. Also, some of the wires are on their last thread. I'm not a wiring guru, how do I fix the wiring so it will go back into the plastic piece.
The little wire ends and the plastig plug are available at auto elecy shop just cut and shut resolder new terminal and fit to plug. To stop this problem re occouring i would suggest fitting a relay to the head lights both high and low beam and a relay for any spots seperatly but connected to high beam only. excessive amps has been running thru the switch causing meltdown. Relays will reduce the load to the wires

1. electrical problems are the hardest one for the cars, houses, apartments and etc.
2. I owned a Union 76 services station and a car stero, CB, TV specialist shop in LA. CA, if I were you, I will go to the junk yard and get a whole set of the wire to put it in, because all the wire connect together, there are many terminals, if you take to the car repaired shop or dealer, it will cost you a lot of money.
3. When you change this kind wire yourself, you have to watch out ;
a. Do not unplug any wire connecters at the same time, it will cause you some confusion.
b. Be sure give the model of your car clear to the junk yard to let them find a right part.
c. If you have the right part, remove your connecter one at a time and or you can write it down every step.
d. It is a big headache, believe me. Maybe you have a better way, because you know your car better than I, I trust you can manage right.
e. watch out the circuit board
Good luck my friend, if you need more help, I like to discuss with you.

You don't need to remove the dash. Look under the dash where the switch is located. on the side of the switch you will see a small button to push in. While pushing in on the button pull the knob as though you were going to turn the lights on. At this time the stem should release from the switch. Undo the bezel and drop the switch down so you can see to unplug the wires. Replace wires to new switch and reverse the procedure to install. You don't need to push the button in when replacing the stem.

Get yourself to a junkyard and pack yourself a light lunch while you're at it. Take a leisurely stroll through the junk that closely resembles the one you need parts for. Go to the closest wiring harness to the headlight assembly, take your time and don't go trying to **** it, and unplug it from the bulbs up front. Make a simple and straight forward swap and do take the time to stop and smell the junkers, it's quite relaxing! Then, you should seriously make sure your new wiring harness is properly grounded (!), which I suspect to have been a contribing factor to your problem of overheating the bulb socket. Do take the time to go over the stuff that should be grounded and make it so. Th e job is quite simple and well worth you taking the time to do it yourself.

Give this a try------get a piece of wire and strip both ends, the black wire coming out of the plug on the head light, stick one end of the wire in there and the other end to a good ground or the negative battery terminal with the lights on, if the light gets brighter, there is a bad ground to that light. I hope this helps, cause you have just done about everything else.
