It's easy, I had a 98 F-150 (same switch) and I removed the switch a couple of times.

Disconnect Neg battery cable, then turn switch to ON position and pull knob outward to the fog light ON position. Using a small screwdriver, pry the knob off the headlight switch.

Turn the knob 180 degrees from the ON position an reinstall it back onto the headlight switch.

Turn the headlight switch to the OFF position, then rotate the knobclokcwise as far as possible and hold it. This will enable the lockingtab on the back to retract and the headlight switch to be removed fromthe instrument panel.

How do you replace a headlight switch on a 1994 Suburban K1500 . I unscrewed 4 screws on the dash that surrounds the gauges and speedometer. Something on the right side is hanging it up. How can I...

Remove the four screws, as you did, and then you need to unplug all of the electrical connections on the right side and on the left side of the panel. You need patience and skinnny hands. Make sure the battery is disconnected before you start. When you replace the dash, screw the screws in LIGHTLY or you will destroy the screw holes and then you will not be able to hold the dash in place.

Speedometer dash area light not working

I'm thing of a place for you to start looking. On the far left side of your dash is your light switch just to the right of it is your dash light switch it's a little wheel roll it up and see if your dash lights come on.
If not you have a fuse box on the left side of you dash you can only see it with the door open. Remove cover on the inside of the cover it will tell you what fuse is for what. fuse may say illum 10A .
Also your parking brake must be fully released or your auto lights will not work. You also have a fuse box under the hood on the left behind the battery. You will find part of your fuse lights there. I have had a lot of problems with my 2001 Chevy 2500HD in the wiring. Runs good just bad wiring.

Where is the Turn Signal relay located on a '00 Intrigue?

It's up under the left side of the dash, attached to the same bracket as the body control module. But sometimes the problem is in the hazard switch - try pressing it when the signals don't work and that often brings them back to life. Also, check the ground wire to the left of the base of the steering column.

No signal lights at all and no emergency flashers

you need to check the "combination turn signal/hazard flasher/daytime running lights module"
it is located in the junction block,the junction block is adjacent to and left of the steering column,you need to remove the lower dash panel below the steering column,then remove the steel knee brace.

Replace hazard switch behind dash

I had the same problem this weekend and fixed it. I experienced the same difficulty. You need to remove a couple covers to allow good access to the back of the hazzard switch. First remove the vent that is located just ot the right of the hazzard switch. There are 2 metal clip at the botton side of the vent. Push up on the clips with a screw driver and pull the vent out. Next remove the black plastic bezzel for the gauges. The bezzel is held in place with 2 screws. Now you should have access to the hazzard switch from the left and right side. The hazzard switch mounts (clips) into a black plastic bracket. I was not able the remove the hazzard swich by pressing on the 2 clips, so I removed the 3 screws that held the bracket to the dash and removed the entire assembly. Hope this helps. I only ended up with a few minor scratches.

Replace dimmer switch in 1997 honda civic hatchback

In 96-98 Civics the dimmer simply pushes in under the left dash vent and is held in place on both sides by metal flexing tabs (no screws). If it were possible to grab it you could pull it straight out with a bit of rocking / side to side motion to help to release it. Unfortunately the proper way to remove it requires removing the lower panel as follows:

You need to remove the plastic cover panel that is underneath the steering column (the one with the switches, coin pocket, and fuse box cover built in). To do this you remove three screws (one above the switches on the upper left, one in the lower left corner, and one on the lower right. You will then need to pull the bottom edge out slightly from the dash and tug the entire panel down towards the floor of the car as gently as possible. You will be pulling out three metal snap-in retainers at the top of the panel, two on the left and one on the right. It is often hard to remove plastic panels without damaging them so be careful. Now unplug the switches (mirror, sunroof, fog light) and set the panel aside. At this point you can easily reach behind the dimmer switch, push it out, pull it through the front of the dash, and unplug it.

Hope this helps
