Question Headlight Switch Replacement How To?

Is there a write up (preferably with pictures) on how to replace the headlight switch? I just bought a replacement switch, and have no idea where to start!

Thanks,
James

Its very simple and easy. mine went bad causing my lights to flicker. grab a butter knife or a flat head screwdriver. slide it in between the switch and dash and pull it out gently. Should come right out. Then disconnect the harness, I believe there is a little tab that holds it together. Then Plug in the new one. Just push the new one back into dash, and walah!

So did you get it fixed? My car (2005 Chrysler 300 Touring) is having the same problem with the flickering but I changed the battery and it's now fine. A recent issue is with the headlights, interior lights, etc. They are turning off and on by themselves. I've read that people have this problem as well and took it to the dealership and it was just the headlight switch.

My questions are:

1. Where can I buy the replacement part (what's the part number)?
2. Do I need to take it to the dealership so they can do the programming or whatever they do that costs me a lot of money?

I appreciate all the help that I can get.

The removal process works as written.

The replacement part is available from the dealer. It may also be available at Rock Auto.

No programming is necessary for the switch replacement.

Thanks for the info. Hopefully this solves the issue. If not, then I guess I'll drive around until I get a ticket. haha

It may be your dimmer switch if the headlights aren't flickering.

Headlamp switch - attn: HawtDawg

There is an updated headlamp switch now - part #68019789AE. The turn knob is now a push button for the fog lights instead of the little button on the bottom right corner (if you have fog lights). You can try your local dealer (about $50-65 depending on dealer, have even seen sale around $37). The problem is availability. My local dealer said there were 405 on back order! I looked on the internet and found that there were 4 left at various dealers across the states. I found one of them that was willing to mail it to me - only cost I think $67 with shipping. Like Tony said above, butter knife worked best, may need to do top and bottom at same time. There are 2 clips on top and 1 on bottom (may be the other way around), and you had to gently, but firmly pull it out. After that it was just unplugging one connector, pluggin in the new one, and pushing it back it. Good as new! I also waited to replace my right front HID headlight until afterwards ($99 at Autozone) and that was easy - no tools required. Hope this helps you out!

Thanks for the update. I just ordered the part two weeks ago but they had to order it from somewhere else. I didn't get the upgraded part (mainly because I didn't know that they would fit) just a replacement. I should be getting it in a few days so we'll see how that goes. Thanks again!
