You were correct....I skimmed it, therfore didn't catch the whole thing...My bad...

Anyways....Swapped the one outta my 94' into it, and it seems to work fine now....Just don't have high/low beams.....It's showing that it has the highbeams on all the time, even when the turn signal stalk is in the low beam position....Any ideas? I wanna just straighten this issue out before the cluster bezel goes back on...

Thanks btw, White 97 xlt

You see there is a circuit breaker in a headlight switch, and they get old, the contacts in the switch get old and have more resistance that builds HEAT, that heat is making your circuit breaker go on and off....
i would bet the new switch will fix the problem

#$%^&* devil

Maybe headlight switch, Grab the switch and push on it in all different directions while the problem is occuring. Then mess with the connector plug where it plugs in (on the back of the switch) to see if anything changes.
