3 wires to the switch. One is hot (+) from headlight switch on the dash, this one should be light blue. The two that come out (it's all in one 3 prong plug) are tan and light green. Tan goes out to the low beams, light green to the high beams.

SOURCE: High beam dimmer switch on a 1989 Cadillac Seville

The dimmer switch operates an actuator that pushes on a rod and then that rod goes down the steering column and pushes on the actual dimmer switch which is near the bottom of the steering column, u will need to remove the trim under the steering column and then the must remove the 2 nuts that hold the column to the bottom of dash, carefully lay the column on the seat and then u will have access to the dimmer switch, actuate the switch and see if the rod moves, if it doesn't then u must replace the dimmer switch rod actuator plastic piece at the top of the column, if it does move up and down either the dimmer switch has come loose or the dimmer switch is defective.

The GM scissors tops from 1971-1976 are the most difficult top to replace/repair. My 42 years of experience with tops recommends that you use a pro and one who has done several of these cars.

The headlight switch contains a circuit breaker for the headlights. You would need to know if you have power in and out of the headlight switch for the headlight circuit. You may need a new switch.

Please help my headlights went out. I replaced switches :(


Not exactly sure where to look but there may be what is called an in-line fuse-link. It would be somewhere in the wire going to the headlight. Basically a fuse but not in a fusebox. I would look under the hood and trace the wire from the headlight.
