You don't. The last time I bought a floor dimmer switch was about 2 years ago and it cost me $17. Most vehicle inspection laws everywhere don't allow for jury rigging. They require what was on the vehicle when it was built. Besides, it's doubtful you could put something else in place for $17. You should be able to get one at a local auto parts store. Hope this helps.

If you are talking about the high/low beam switch just replace it, that part is about $12, 2 screws, 1 plug, and 5 minutes, its fixed.

Problem battery goes dead after sitting. Did some testing that led me to lights , possibly dimmer or multi-function switch maybe ignition switch.


a dimmer switch is just a variable resistor and that only passes current at various ratings ( more resistance the lower the light
similarly switches only make and break a circuit so your problem will be after a switch possibly a faulty relay or light control module
some dimmer switches have incorporated an "OFF" section where the light gets progressively dimmer until there is a definite click for off
If your switch has that option then at full resistance but not "off" position then there will be a current flow that will be less that what is required to show light but enough to drain a battery
some vehicles that used this option were older GM or Ford products where the light switch incorporated a dimmer switch as well
the pull to first position put on the dash lights and twisting the knob gave various degrees of brightness in the dash
a further pull turned on the head lights

Can I put a 1981 ford f-150 motor in a 1991 ford f-150 truck


Sounds to me like you opened a can of worms that you are not equipped/qualified to deal with. To begin with, doing an engine change the way you did it is illegal. It is OK to put the newer motor in the older vehicle, but it is against federal law to put the older engine into the newer vehicle. REFERENCE: EPA ENGINE SWAP FACT SHEET

With all that said, if you want to do a swap like that, it is necessary to also swap wiring harnesses and computer modules (among several other components) if you expect it to work.
