Headlight Switch

ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ The headlight switch controls most of the vehicle's lighting systems. Many complaints concerning the lighting systems can be the result of a faulty headlight switch. For example, dim or no instrument panel lights, dim or no headlights, dim or no parking lights, and improperly operating dome lights can all be caused by the headlight switch.
Dash-Mounted Switches
f36-12.jpg A headlight switch. You'll need to remove the switch to test it. With the switch removed it can be tested for continuity and the connector plug will serve as a test point for the lighting circuits. First test at the connector.
In this procedure the terminals are identified as follows:
  • Terminal B = battery
  • Terminal A = fuse
  • Terminal H = headlights
  • Terminal R = rear park and side marker lights
  • Terminal I = instrument panel lights
  • Terminal D1 = dome feed light
  • Terminal D2 = dome light
Consult the service manual for terminal identification for the vehicle you are working on. If this is not listed in a separate chart, you should be able to identify the circuits from the wiring diagram.
  • Connect the 12-volt test light across terminal B and ground. The test light should light. If not, there is an open in the circuit back to the battery.

  • Connect the test light across terminal A and ground. The test light should come on. If not, repair the circuit back to the fuse panel.
  • Connect a jumper wire between terminals B and H. The headlights should come on. If the headlights fail to turn on, trace the H circuit to the headlights. Also check the ground circuit side from the headlights.
  • Connect a jumper wire between terminals A and R. The rear lamps should illuminate. If not, trace the circuit to the rear lights. Also check the ground return path.
  • Connect a jumper wire between terminals A and I. The instrument panel lights should come on. If not, trace the circuit to the panel lights.
The chart below indicates the test results that should be obtained when testing the headlight switch for continuity. use an ohmmeter or a self-powered test light to test the switch.
Steering Column-Mounted Switches
On some vehicles it is possible to test the steering column-mounted switch without removing it. The test is conducted at the connector at the base of the column. However, on some vehicles it is necessary to remove the column cover and/or steering wheel to gain access.

Low beam lights on the passenger side works and driver side does not. high beam driver side works and passenger side does not. we have already replaced the bulbs and it did not help.


It's quite common for headlight connectors to become so tarnished that one or both of the filaments in the headlights is either dim or non-functional. One way to clean them up is to cut a strip of steel the same width as the terminal blades on the headlight (this is for push-on connectors; some vehicles use screw terminals) and long enough to hold conveniently, then cut a strip of Scotch-Brite about 6-8" long and the same width. Wrap and hold the Scotch-Brite around one end of the strip to make your contact cleaning device. Push it into the connector contact and pull it out several times. Repeat for each contact. Next, identify the ground wire for each headlight connector (black or green wire that connects to vehicle body metal somewhere nearby). Unscrew the ground terminal from the vehicle body and polish the terminal and the underside of the screw head, and clean the body metal in the area covered by the terminal.

If the headlight comes on but is still dim, repeat the connector cleaning procedure. If the headlight connector is very severely corroded, you may need to replace it.

Dim Dashboard read


On most vehicles you have a dimmer switch ( not talking about headlights) which you can adjust how bright or how dim the dashboard lights are because some people want them bright and others prefer dim either check your owners manual or check all around for it from drivers seat ( within drivers reach) when you find it if you can't adjust it then you want to consider replacing dash lights or switch.
