Your hi/lo switch is mounted to the steering column under the dash. It operates by pulling on the signal wand--a rod going down the column pushes the switch off and on. If nothing happens when you pull back on the wand, check to make sure the rod is still in the switch and is moving down on the switch whenm you pull back on the wand. If that mechanism is good, the switch is probably bad. I have pasted a picture of the switch below. The cost is about $12 at autozone.

If the rod is not actuating the switch, someone will need to take the steering wheel off and take the column apart until reaching the actuating linkage to see what's wrong.
If you have more questions, please let me know.

Headlights only work on bright


i had this happen with my dodge ram 1500. the guy i bought it from put 350 dollar moon lit lights in with leds and they looked impressive but the issue was that they didnt go bright and i could only see 40 feet in front of me and i was sure taping led flashlights would have done me more good that those stupid headlights. then i had the idea of if the brights work and the dims dont then that means no electricity is getting to the dims so i decided to bridge the power from the bright headlight to the dims and it made all four work. now they all work, and only on bright. so im figuring there is a issue with the wiring in the truck. so this is a temporary solution if you really need just plain old lights like i did because i live out in the country

My headlights won't turn on, the yellow driving lights turn on but the headlamps won't. Also the lever that controls bright lights doesn't work but the turn signal and cruise control does.


First check the headlight relay by changing it with one of the same number in the fuse panel.If it checks out ok then you have a faulty headlight switch.

I had the same problem. The solution is simple; the ignition switch needs to be replaced. This is an easy do-it-yourself project. Here are instructions:

Check for a switch on ebay, they are about $15. After 10 years they wear out.
