Use a pocket screw driver - pull light switch knob out and pull back on metal retainer for knob until it releases . Remove insteument panel bezel around cluster and remove screws that retain the switch assy and rwmove switch and unplug connector- note it may be melted and hard to remove ! Once out push the button on the bottom of switch assy while pulling out rod , remove the the rod . If connector is melted obtain a pigtail connector and cut and solder a new connector in and install switch in reverse order ! Note that useing diaelectric grease in connector to switch helps with conductivity and helps block moisture !

SOURCE: Headlights

If you have daytime running lights but when you turn on your regular headlight on they do not come on. Take the bottom of your steering column off (Two Small Screws) and look at the back of your turn/dimmer switch make sure that the light blue wire is connected. The wires will break off after years of raising and lowering your steering column. My 1998 K1500 did the same thing and this is what happened to mine

My brake lights work but my tail lights and reverse lights don't work. Also my dash lights quit when I changed the switch for my headlights.


Check your fuses. I had the same problem with a 90 Honda civic. Dash lights went out, tail lights also went out. Replaced 1 fuse and all came back on.

Dash lights do not work 2000 ford exploier


All go out at once, first check fuses,then dimmer switch for dash lights, finally headlight switch. To check dimmer switch, pull connection off back, on harness with test light and headlight switch activated, 1 of the leads should have power, if so, use ohm meter on dimmer to make sure it has reading between 0 and some value, if no value, open, dimmer is bad, if there wasn't power then check headlight switch, there should be heavier gauge wire that powers switch and 1 for output to hi/lo switch, smaller gauge wires for tail lamps, dash lights, license plate lamps, parking lights. The color wires from dimmer would correspond to the same colored wires on headlamp switch, probe that connection on headlamp switch with switch engaged and see if you have power, if not replace switch, if so, check wire from switch to dimmer.Now if the lights slowly went from bright one day, to less bright some other day, to not working, then the bulbs are bad... good luck...

I have a 93 Mercury Grand Marquis and the headlights randomly turn off and on, does anyone know how to solve this?


There are 3 components for the headlights in your dash. The headlight switch, the delay switch, and the autolamp light sensor. If you have the lights manually turned on, without the autolamp position on the switch being on, then the headlight switch is a simple off-on switch.
If the headlight switch is manually on and the lights are cutting out the problem is either the fusible links or bad contacts in the light switch.
If you are using the autolamp position on the light switch, this is a different circuit. The autolamp system needs the light sensor to work. If the light sensor is dangling under the tiny slots in the dash every bump you hit will shake it. Or it can be a broken filament in the light sensor. To test, just eliminate the circuit by using only the manual off-on side of your light switch.

A loose power wire to the light switch (or ground) will affect BOTH the manual and automatic settings. But if the manual setting always works, then its the automatic parts that are broken. The delay switch does not work until after the ignition is off so it can not be the problem while you are driving.

My dash board lights just went off.what must be happening


It could be something very simple. You may have bumped the dash board light dimmer switch. It is a small slider switch directly above the rear fog light switch which is directly above the headlight switch. This slide switch will adjust the brightness of your dash board lights or shut them off. If you didn't bump this switch, then this switch may just be bad and need replacing. If everything else works, then it is probably the switch.

What started this mess? tailights, fog lights, brake lights....


The relay has nothing to do with the tail lights, but replacing the switch sounds like a good idea. There's a nut holding it in place, see http://www.skandix.de/en/spare-parts/electrics/switches/switch-headlight/1027524/ to get an idea of the construction. And the price. This is not worth fiddling about unreliable workarounds...
In addition, if fuses 15 and/or 16 burn frequently there might be a problem with the tail light cabling.

Good luck
