How do I access the battery compartment on model 06443

To change the batteries in your flashlight, unscrew and remove the base tailcap, as the end that doesn't have the light. Remove the battery holder, replace batteries and then replace the battery holder in the same way that it was taken out (spring first).

I have a 98 blazer 4wd emergency lights switch

If you purchase the complete multifunction switch to repair, you will need to disassemble the column covers and steering wheel to access the screws. If you purchase just the hazard switch (sometimes available from GM), just remove the upper cover and use a pocket screwdriver down the side to release the lock tab. Then insert the new switch and reinstall the cover.

How do you open the flashlight to replace the battery?

You have to unscrew the end tailcap. Remember, unscrew it counter clockwise, and when replacing the batteries keep in mind the polarity.

Flashlight only works when end cap is partially on. Will not work when cap is fully screwed in. New batteries installed.

Some models of the famous MagLite use this 'feature' as the on-off switch. I have several such myself.

I have a Streamlight Strion Xenon compact flashlight that has served me well for two years. Recently the 'twist to stay on' feature has failed. The 'push the tailswitch on' feature is still functioning,...

Ray, sounds like the switch has a problem. Streamlight is usually really good about fixing things. If you can drop by a Stream retailer in your area, they will probably give you a new tail cap. Or contact STREAM directly.
One thing, when you screw the tailcap tight, does the light come on? I have a SUREFIRE that does that, but I dont have a twist on Streamlight.
