Question about 1990 Ford F150
I have new switch but dont know how to get the pull out of old to put in the new one
I hope I have the correct information for you. You have to get the rod to come out of the switch right? If so, reach under the dash and get your hand on the switch. On the bottom side (usually) there is a little pin, spring loaded, that you push in while pulling on the knob. This releases the rod from the switch and the rod can be pulled out. That pin is about the size of the head of a screw. It will be on the opposite side of where the electrical connector plugs into the headlight switch. Look at your new switch to see what I mean.

Be sure to check and see if your wiring to frame ground is good. I am not sure that you "blew" all of this at once. There should be a ground that runs from the light harness to somewhere on the core support. Just be prepared to chase wires. Electrical gremlins are always fun.

SOURCE: headlight switch replacement
Here is the recall info.
The vehicles affected by this recall are certain ‘92 & ‘93 model year Ford Thunderbirds and Mercury Cougars. The problem; the headlights turn off, then come back on after driving with the fog lights on. Ford is replacing the headlight switch and if necessary the electrical connector for the headlight switch. Repairs for a safety recall are to be performed at no cost to the vehicle owner, even if you are not the original owner. In addition, if the headlight switch was replaced before the recall, the owner is entitled to a refund for repairs. But the owner should still bring their vehicle in for inspection. Why? The replacement part may not have been of the new design.

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.
