SOURCE: Upgrading '84 CJ7 Headlight Switch with newer Wrangler Dash Switc

They work on the same principal, so as long as the amps and volts match up on the switch they should.however you will have to "eyeball" the size to see if the newer one will adapt right.

SOURCE: when i pull out the light switch the headlights

I think you have some of your symptoms wrong. I think you mean the rear park lamps are not working, not the brake lamps. Please do some checks.

First, the brake lights and turn signals and hazard flashers do not go through the headlamp switch.

The instrument panel lamps, headlights and parking lights do go through the headlamp switch. The parking lamps are the first position as you pull out on the switch. That will turn on the front and rear parking lamps and side marker lamps as well as the instrument panel lamps.

The 2nd position is the headlamp position. That will turn on the headlamps, front parking lamps, rear tail lamps, side marker lamps, and the instrument panel lamps.

So, go out and check to make sure which lights are not working. Step on the brake pedal and have someone tell you if the brake lights come on. Also, chefk to see if the turn signals and 4 way flashers are working. Report everything you find.

Note: The instrument panel lights are connected to the rear tail lamps. That way, if the rear lamps quit, you will know because you will have no instrument lamps either.

This is very common. the headlight switch is bad. replace the switch and that should solve the problem.

i have run into some that the dash lights dont work at all or they come on and off while driving.
the switch goes bad. there is also a dimmer switch . the dimmer switch controls the dim or brightness off the lights.

What started this mess? tailights, fog lights, brake lights....


The relay has nothing to do with the tail lights, but replacing the switch sounds like a good idea. There's a nut holding it in place, see http://www.skandix.de/en/spare-parts/electrics/switches/switch-headlight/1027524/ to get an idea of the construction. And the price. This is not worth fiddling about unreliable workarounds...
In addition, if fuses 15 and/or 16 burn frequently there might be a problem with the tail light cabling.

Good luck

Remove and Install Headlight Switch in 1994 Lincoln Town Car


Disconnect the battery ground first
1. remove the trim strip from the left and right of the steering assembly
2. take the 12 screws that hold the dash panel
3. take a right angle tool and remove the headlight switch knob by inserting in slot at the back of the knob and pulling toward you and pulling the knob off , this will let you pull back the dash panel and expose the switch. Un- fasten the headlight switch bracket and un fasten the connector and inspect . Replace the switch if necessary , especially if it is burned. GOOD Luck
