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.

88 Bronco 11- headlights would not come on. Replaced switch, still no headlights. Found that if I pulled high beam switch on steering wheel colum, lights worked. This worked for a while, now no headlights...

It sounds like the multi-function switch in your steering column has worn out. It will have to be replaced,you can't repair it. Hope this helps.

Bronco uses a RELAY switch under the hood. Is that what you replaced?

Swap it with the A/C RELAY switch (they are the same) to check it.

Headlights and tailights won't come on on my 1986 bronco

You may have somehow accidently unplugged the headlight switch in the dash. It should not be able to be pulled off Being an 86 it may have been replaced and the retaining tabbs damaged. Try pushing the wiring harness connector back on the switch.

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.
