Its the head lite switch its a vary complex switch controls a lot of fuctions but vary well made .
I just did mine .I was supprised I got it for 17.00 $ new although I know parts people .
The way to get at it is remove the bolts holding the fuse box push it back .Then you can reach up to the switch .The trick about it their is a button on the side of it push it and the and the knob and shaft pulls out the front of the switch then you can remove the trim and unbolt the switch drop it and disconnect the connecter .
Y ou don't need to push the button to install the shaft it will click in just make sure the reiostat and reluctor are lined up on the switch before you bolt the switch mount bolts because the trim has to go back on before the shaft is installed .

SOURCE: how do I replace the headlight switch in a 1985 ford f150 xlt

  1. Disconnect the battery ground cable.
  2. Depending on the year and model remove the wiper/washer and fog lamp switch knob if they will interfere with the headlight switch knob removal. Check the switch body (behind dash, see Step 3) for a release button. Press in on the button and remove the knob and shaft assembly. If not equipped with a release button, a hook tool may be necessary for knob removal.
  3. Remove the steering column shrouds and cluster panel finish panel if they interfere with the required clearance for working behind the dash.
  4. Unscrew the switch mounting nut from the front of the dash. Remove the switch from the back of the dash and disconnect the wiring harness.
  5. Install in reverse order.
Good luck.....

pull out the headlight knob to put the headlights on then under the dash on the switch there is a button that needs to be depressed to pull the knob out of the switch. then on the front of the dash where you removed the knob there is a nut that requires removal then the switch assembly can be removed from the dash and lowered to disconnect the electrical plug. install in reverse order.

How do i remove just the knob?


The wiper knob has a clip you release, and the headlight knob comes out of the switch with the rod attached. There is a button on the headlight switch you press to release the knob and rod together.

Headlights go on and off ford f150 1985


FROM THE SOUNDS OF WHAT YOU ARE TELLING ME , EITHER THE DIMMER SWITCH OR THE HEADLIGHT SWITCH IS GOING BAD, ALSO IF I AM NOT MISTAKEN THE DIMMER SWITCH IS ON THE FLOOR,IF SO CHECK & MAKE SURE THAT IT IS GETTING A GOOD GROUND TO THE FLOOR, IN CASE OF RUST, ETC, YOU CAN RUN A GROUND WIRE DOWN AND PUT IT UNDER ONE OF THE SCREWS THAT MOUNTS IT TO THE FLOORBOARD.

pull dash panel and remove switch hardest part is getting the knob off. you must insert a small screw in the slot to release knobe. if its in the switch on the collum you would have to remove the sterring wheel to replace. haynes and chilton manuels for your car are a good way to learn about it and there only 20 bucks at parts stores. berrydalewolf
