Headlight switch malfuntion

Recommended Posts

A friends child was playing in the car when she turned the headlights on. I gently coaxed the kid out of my car and tried to turn the headlights off, they truned of fine. But that "pull" feaure to torn the fog lights on is now allways on the "on" position?! If I turn the headlights on, the fogs come on as well. I can no longer run the headlights independently.

I cant see to push the dial back into the dash?

Any takers??

Hmmmm? You mean when you turn switch counterclockwise it doesn't snap back down? Or it snaps down/off but the fogs still come on without pulling the switch?

What happens when you pull to turn on the rear fog?

Correct, it wont snap back down to lay flush. It doesnt matter which direction I turn it the darn thing wont push back in.

I can turn it to all the settings but I cant turn off the front fog lights...

Im not sure what the mechanicals behind the dial look like so I dont want to try and force it in and break it.

Do a search here for how to remove/replace the headlight switch. I would remove it and see if something is damaged or broken.

Worst case just get a new headlight switch - they do wear out.

I think I found it! Ill give it a shot tonight after work!

Thanks Loren!
