SOURCE: how do I replace the headlight switch in a 1985 ford f150 xlt

  1. Disconnect the battery ground cable.
  2. Depending on the year and model remove the wiper/washer and fog lamp switch knob if they will interfere with the headlight switch knob removal. Check the switch body (behind dash, see Step 3) for a release button. Press in on the button and remove the knob and shaft assembly. If not equipped with a release button, a hook tool may be necessary for knob removal.
  3. Remove the steering column shrouds and cluster panel finish panel if they interfere with the required clearance for working behind the dash.
  4. Unscrew the switch mounting nut from the front of the dash. Remove the switch from the back of the dash and disconnect the wiring harness.
  5. Install in reverse order.
Good luck.....

Need diagram for f150 1976 wire attachment to break pedal, replaced slave cylinder abad now lights are on constant.


Mcmom, Either your brake pedal is not coming up far enough to the brake switch, or the brake switch is faulty. You may still have air in brake system not allowing pedal to come up high enough to contact switch, pull brake pedal all the way up and have a second person see if brake lights go off.
Links below to show brake switch location and show how brake pedal arm should come all the way up to turn off brake lights.

No brake lights 1985 f-150


The problem more than likely exists with the brake light switch. It is located under the steering column on the brake pedal shaft. There should be a kotter pin or clip that holds it in place. Remove pin or clip and carefully slide the brake rod off the brake pedal shaft. Disconnect wiring and remove completely. To install, just simply reverse the order of removal. On some model Fords, the brake light switch slides over a rod on the brake pedal shaft. If this is the case, you will need to pull forward on the brake pedal shaft (slightly) to remove the switch. Keep me informed if possible. Any other help, feel free to contact me.
