I have a 1995 ford mustang that needs a headlamp switch. I bought the switch and the plug that goes into the switch, there are wires coming out of the cluster that go into the plug ang the plug goes into the switch and that seperates the headlights from the interior and reverse lights and so on and so forth. What i need to know is what the colors that are existing in the car go to which wires on the plug with the wires coming out of it, please help me i really need the lights for night driving. When i take all wires in the dash and twist them all together all the lights work but i need the switch installed. The car is a v-6 convertible with the typical 3.8.

Like Pit Crew, my first suspision is a bad ground [aka earth] or a bad connection in the power supply to the headlamp. If the left headlamp is normal, that eliminates the headlight switch and dimmer switch. Unplug the electrical connector from the passenger side headlamp. Using a set of 14AWG or heavier jumper cables, connect the lamp to the battery via the jumper cables. If the lamp is bright, use the jumper cable only for the ground or the power. This should point you in the direction of the problem. The ground point for the passenger side headlamp, parking lamp and turn signal is the same. It's G103. You should find this ground wire on the passenger side of the radiator support. Remove the wire and clean the connection between the wire terminal and the sheet metal of the radiator support.
Insert a thin tool into the slot, pull and remove the headlamp switch knob.
Remove the instrument panel cluster finish panel.
Remove the screws and remove the finish panel.
Remove the headlamp switch.
Remove the screws.
Remove the switch.
Disconnect the electrical connectors.
NOTE: When the battery is disconnected and reconnected, some abnormal
drive symptoms may occur while the vehicle relearns its adaptive strategy. The
vehicle may need to be driven 16 km (10 mi) or more to relearn the
strategy. To install, reverse the removal procedure.
The spark plugs go in the spark plug holes. You need a 5/8" socket with an extension. The threaded part goes in the hole, leaving the white part showing. A clockwise motion is required to screw them in. If you are needing the firing order then you must give the size of motor and the number of spark plugs it has.
The headlamp switch or the multi function switch(turn signal,wiper switch) is causing your problem. Find out what switch is cheaper and replace it. I've seen the headlamp switch go bad more than the multi switch.
If you look on the side of the knob you will find a push in button whick you will need a pointy thing to push it in with while you pull the knob off or there will be a small screw Then there is a nut holding switch to dash Plug behind dash to switch
If you bought the fog lights from Ford and they plugged into factory plugs at the front bumper, then I suspect you need the headlight switch that came optional for your car. You will need to install a relay into the fuse box. Check for any fuses for that circuit. I did one on a Ford f-150 and the switch came with the lights from Ford.Usually the fog lights are not on until you push a button or turn the switch.
