The headlight switch is part of the change lane or turn signal lever handle that goes in the steering wheel assembly. You must replace the entire assembly because it is not easy to replace only the headlight switch. As it somewhat expensive, try to check to be sure it is the switch what has failed and not the wiring harness or other part of the circuit. Same situation for the high beams switch. Look for suppliers, as the original part is too overpriced. It is made by "VALEO" from France.

SOURCE: No headlights, or dash lights.

check the ground cable at the battery , youll see a break in the ground wire at the battery box, check to make sure the bolt is tight and not corroded (the break is the ground for most of the lighting )

SOURCE: Headlights and foglights dont work.Checked fuses and replaced

I had the same problem. The solution to this is something called the turn signal/highbeam switch, located in your steering column. This switch has an actuator of some sort that goes bad after a while. It doesn't allow the actuator to turn back into regular headlight mode, instead disabling it. I went to my local junkyard and replaced it. Everything works now. Here is a link to anyone looking to solve their problem - http://www.am-autoparts.com/AM/Switches-and-Levers/Dodge/Intrepid/-/AM-38623751/

SOURCE: 2001 Dodge Durango, headlights flicker

I had a similar problem on my 2001 Caravan. Turned out to be a loose connection between the frame control module and the fuse box. I unscrewed the frame/front control module from the fuse box and bent the tabs slightly to make better contact. Then tighten down the module securley. Need star driver to loosen screws

How to fix non working headlights


First check your fuses. If ok. Turn your headlight switch and see if rear parking lights turn on. If they do more than likely your headlight switch is not your problem. If running lights dont come on, check your headlight switch operation..

Low beam lights dont work


Are you sure bulbs are good? If low beam are running lights as well, might be set in series. If one bulb goes out, no light at all. This was the case for a 2003 toyota camry. Was wired in series.

Dodge ram 1500- when car is in park, the "park lights" dont work.


The parking lights would not normally come on unless you turn them on with the headlight switch. The daytime running lights would come on in drive and go off in park.
If you can't turn the parking lights on with the headlight switch, you would check the fuse, the relay if equipped, and the headlight switch.

Headlights don't work.


There is a circuit breaker inside the headlight switch body. It gets weak over time and use. The breaker is actually mentioned in the owners manual. A new switch is about $75.00 at the local parts store. You must remove the front of the dash to change the switch. Mine would go off and then in about 30 seconds reset and the lights would come back on. I would be driving down the road with my headlights flashing as the circuit breaker opened and closed. New switch = problem fixed.
