I would suggest testing the multi function switch (that is the turn signal/windshield wiper control/high/low beam swith) and replacing if necessary. Autozone sells it for about $50. If you are inclined you can buy a Haynes manual that tells step by step how to replace it. Your switch may be o.k. and it may be loose wires(there are approximately 12 wires in it) in the multi function switch connector because you said your lights come on if you pull back and hold the lever. If the wires have pulled loose or out, they're not very hard to reinsert. The Haynes manual gives you step by step how to test the multi function switch with an ohmmeter. Good luck.

Light sheilds wont open and lights wont come on. If i turn on my brights and hold the swith the sheilds open and brights come on but i have to hold the switch on.


This could be a bad switch but im not sure what knd of car this is, there are many cars out that you need to push the lever foward to activate the highbeam lights, pulling back is only to turn on until lever is released, try pushing foward that should turn them on and keep them on until you pull back on the lever, good day.

Try turning the headlight control knob clockwise so that the arrow is pointing up. You may only have it in daytime lights mode and not actually in headlight mode.

Dodge had a problem with bad headlamp switches. They will get hot enough to melt the switch and the connectors. Replacement switch comes with new connector and pigtail wires which require cutting the old wires and soldering new ones to the old and seal with shrink tubing. Do NOT attach with crimp connectors (**** connector). Take the extra effort to do a proper solder job on them. The switch is pricey - mine cost me about $100 from the dealer.

Brights won't stay on


It appears the switch lever itself is broken. When you pull back and release the lever, there should be a clicking sound.

1990 Jeep Wrangler Problem:


1990 Jeep Wrangler. Driving with lights on for 10 - 15 minutes. First the dash lights go out followed by the headlight and tail lights. If you pull the dimmer switch back (like you would to flash your brights at someone) the head lights will come on and as long as you continue to pull back on the dimmer switch the head lights will stay on bright.
