- great direct replacement. thank you dorman!
my 2001 f250 is starting to show its age. the 7.3 engine is still a reliable beast, but the plastic froo froo items in the cab have begun to give up. first was the overdrive button cover on the gear selector. dorman hooked me up with that too. next was this headlamp knob. thankfully this part failed instead of the switch stem that

- very nice knob, but didn’t fit our 2002 ford
this knob is very nice, however, our son bought it, so i don’t know if it was bought specifically for our model of the 2002 ford ranger. if it was, then it is the wrong one. it didn’t fit at all. we did find one at a local car parts store. i’m sure it would be great for the proper vehicle as it is, as i said, a very nice

- poor finish, doesn’t latch onto switch. still usable.
firstly, this is a very poor quality, fibrous plastic. it looks like old fiberglass, with a high amount of glass fiber reinforcement. it visibly doesn’t match the switch. the original switch is a clear plastic with white primer than a black finish, because it is back lit, so that function wont work anymore, also. second, and more

- excellent original head light switch for 1992 gm trucks and suv’s
good genuine gm product in original box. easy to install in 1992 suburban or trucks.excellent fit, switch feels solid when actuated. legends on switch are crisp and bright. just one tip: when installing the switch make sure that the ambient temperature is pleasantly warm or take the dashboard instrument bezel into a warm room. don’t

- perfect replacement
fit right in to my 1990 chevy k2500. much snappier than the original switch. these are a common failure point on these trucks because all the current for the lights run through the switch. you can fix this by adding relays to your headlights and splicing the stock headlight connector wires into the control side of the relay. you can buy
- not that hard to install
installed in my 1994 gmc 4×4 pickup, reason why i ordered it was because when ever i went to turn on my lights it would take awhile for them to turn on, dash lights would come right on but not the head lights. i fill its a little pricy but not having to wait for your lights to come on made it worth it. now they come on as soon as i turn

- must have, for factory looking foglight install !
easy install. i needed this to make my fog light install look factory on my non factory equipped silverado. ac delco part, so the fit was perfect, and the circuit from switch to fusebox was already in place, including the fuse and relay (thankfully)… i still had to make a harness from the fusebox to the fog lights, and purchase the

- fog lights still not working but great product
i purchased this item as a replacement. i already had factory fog lights that did not work. after replacement the lights still do not work. good bulbs good fuse good relay. i have no power at the fuse. i noticed someone say if the switch is not turned on, there would be no power at the fuse, so could it be a bad switch out of the box or

- exact fit
it took longer for the six pack i bought for the install to cool than it did for me to install this switch. pulled a couple of dash panels, replaced switch, put dash panels back on, bob’s your uncle. i used this as an upgrade part to add factor fogs to my 11 silverado.

don’t even notice the green backlight. fixed the intermittent dimming dash light. i even took the original switch apart cleaned contacts. was a temporary fix. the new switch is the way to go. it’s so easy to change. could be done while filling up with gas. you just have to set parking brake and move gear shifter all the way down as

i looked at a dozen offerings. i usually only buy original gm or ac delco. but reviews were mixed, suggesting service parts are cheaply sourced like others. this brand had the best reviews and a great price. simple install. google for help. trim color is a little darker, but looks fine. i’m fussy, this switch is great. fixed my

writings great on an 07 silverado classic crew cab pickup !!
super super easy to install. took less than 5 mins. i had the flickering dash light problem, and usually they would just shut off regardless of which way i turned the little wheel. this part took care of that problem.
writings great, only minor issue is that the lights are a green tint as opposed to the white tint i have throughout the rest

this was a direct replacement for the switch in my 2005 chevy silverado 2500 hd duramax i had issues where my dash and radio lights would periodically go out when i had my headlights on. i did some online research and was pointed in the direction of this switch… and i was glad! the switch arrived in 2 days with prime shipping and i

my dash lighting started fading in and out while driving at night. i wasn’t 100% positive on what was causing the fading, but figured it may have have something to do with the brightness control on my old assembly. fortunately, i guessed correctly and after around a 10 minute project of pulling off the dashboard trim, replacing the old

the knob on my light switch for my truck had broken and it was very loose. when i opened the door of my truck it fell off and rolled under my truck. that was an ordeal, but once it was recovered, i glued it back on. someone else in my household used my truck and it must have fallen off when they hit a bump in the road. i did not

since the 2010’s come pre-wired for auto headlights and even already have the light sensor installed, i couldn’t believe they didn’t just come standard. but i guess ford wants v6 owners to know their model is inferior :-(this simple to install switch solved the problem and turned my manual headlights into automatic ones. i recommend

$22.80 you cant go wrong. this is my 1st mod to my 2011 mustang premium. easy to install. remove two 7mm bolts from the bottom cover panel by your feet. pull the panel off with some force as it is held in with some clips. remove the 7mm bolt connecting the switch housing to the dash. use something flat plastic to pry from the top and the

controller works great with the only issue being that it lights up dimmer than the original. other than that the dimming feature works as do the auto on/off switch and interior done light button control. i would still recommend this switch looking to save a little money.as for the install, it was a pretty simple task as i have done this

- quick drop-in replacement in 2004 suburban
nearly indistinguishable from the factory original, except for the green-tinted backlight once installed (which is very close in brightness to the other dash lights, fits in nicely). installation is very easy, in part thanks to gm’s design of the dash, and so far it’s working

i mounted oem style fog lights on my 2013 ford f-350 super duty xlt truck. unfortunately, the fog light kit didn’t include an oem headlamp switch with the fog light feature. the ws-6637 switch fits & functions perfectly with my fog lights. my truck didn’t require a ford dealer to “flash” the computer, to activate the fog

i ordered & installed this on my 1996 dodge ram 2500. the only reason i gave it 4 stars is because the heat shrink that comes with it is for if you are soldering the wire connections. i used butt connectors & had to run out to get heat shrink that would fit over those. otherwise so for its a good replacement switch. fyi… since they

ok so this is the second headlight switch we have bought from this company. the first one did not work right so we got another one just incase we got a bad one. this one is the exact same way! you can’t just pull out the knob to turn on the headlights. nope it won’t turn on, instead you have to find just the right spot to turn them on.
