Headlight switch

I am looking to get a headlight switch. Mine is working but starting to cause problems.
Anyone have a working headlight switch for sale that will ship?

You definitely want a new switch. Then, if you are old enough to remember, think of it as a old TV tuning knob and change the channels one click at a time.

I have one that I replaced with a new one when diagnosing my headlight issues (It was not the problem) but you may want to go new. Mine is the original and replaced at 108K miles. PM me with your shipping details and I will let you have it if it would help you out in the meantime.

Try cleaning it with Tuner or Contact cleaner. The main difference is tuner cleaner has a lubricant in it and contact cleaner does not.
Either is fine

Just spray it in anywhere you can and work the switch in all positions

Mine was doing weird things around 25k miles ago and has been fine since

Thank you for the information. I am not 100% sure its my switch. I would rather try a used one, make sure it works first. Then fork out the big money.
