Headlight switch plug for 84 cj7

I'm about to change out my headlight switch The wiring harness plug has a black wire in the plug and coming out i notice a 16A black-18 wire w/end connector just hanging there. My question is: Does this connect to a ground (If so, where?), accessory light of some type, or is there for extra hook up?

My headlights on my 74 olds 98 fliker i have in stalled a new switch


Check ground wire from battery to car chassis (black)
Check ground wires from headlight wiring harness to core support black wires should be attached to core support with 5/16 head sheet metal screws. the grounds will be on both sides near the headlight plug.
Check bulkhead connector on firewall 2 piece square plug where interior wires come out under the hood. Drivers side by master cylinder. Remove and replace a few times to work corrosion off and re-tighten bolt.

Hope this helps.

I bought some halo driving lights for my '03 GMC Sierra 1500, they came with a wiring harness, switch and everything needed for installation except for installation instructions. Help PLEASE!


Tools recommended for this job: wire stripper, wire crimper, volt meter, 4x quick wire connectors, 4x male crimp connectors, 4x female crimp connectors
  1. First, tape the halo and/or LED wires to the back of the headlights to keep them from tangling.
  2. Keep the pairs in order by their color, e.g. black, black (ground) and Red, Red (positive). Note: positive and ground wires might not always be black and red.
  3. Remove some of the plastic shielding at the end of the wires to expose enough copper wire, next twist the copper together to strengthen it.
  4. Shove the twisted copper into a crimp connector; crimp the location where wire and the connector end overlaps, wrap with electrical tape to secure it.
  5. Two extra wires in black and red will be helpful to make the halo/LED wire longer to easier installation. Remove shielding: show copper: use the connectors: connect the positive and ground from the headlights.
  6. Next step, turn the headlights inside the car to the [on] position.
  7. Take the volt meter and connect the negative to the negative on the battery (please use extreme precaution when doing so).
  8. The headlight harness usually will have [3] wires, generally red, black, green (headlights, ground, turn signal). Use the volt meter to test which wire will have power running through it (since the headlight is in the [on] position) which will be the headlight wire.
  9. Use the quick connector to connect the extra wires (red) to the power wire on the harness and black to the ground. This will split the current coming from the harness. Crimp the connectors and use electrical tape to secure it.
  10. Now connect the projector headlight halo wires and the harness from the car.
  11. No wires should be left over unconnected.
  12. The installation is now complete.

My headlights suddenly stopped working. I assume it's a blown fuse. I have an old 84 cj7 that I do not have the manual for. I'm trying to find out which fuse is responsible for my problem.


Don't have a diagram for that one but I'd begin by checking power and ground at lights and power on the "out" wire from the switch, and work towards the middle. Also check power distribution center and see if there is a fuse, relay or both for that.

Upgrading '84 CJ7 Headlight Switch with newer Wrangler Dash Switc


They work on the same principal, so as long as the amps and volts match up on the switch they should.however you will have to "eyeball" the size to see if the newer one will adapt right.

Blinkers work except when.......


Sounds like you have a ground problem on the lights.
I'm assuming that the front lights that don't work are the directionals.
You might want remove one then turn on the headlights and try a temporary ground wire to the black wire. If it works then either check your ground wire from the battery to the chassis or install a separate ground wire the the light assembly.
As far as blinking fast, make sure all your lights are working. If one bulb is out that could be the problem.
Replace the dimmer switch.
