Economical replacement for expensive OEM multi-function switch. Driving light switch often fails on PT Cruisers as Chrysler has no relay in the circuit, causing the switch to overheat, then the driving lights come on by themselves killing the battery. OEM switch is made by Lucas, not a manufacturer known for reliability in electronics. This unit through Advance has a lifetime warranty! Replacement is exceptionally easy; 2 Phillips screws on the cover, 2 torx screws on the switch, disconnect 2 electrical plugs, remove unit, 2 more small torx screws to swap over the wiper switch, swap the headlight relay to the new unit and reassemble in reverse order. See "you tube" for video instructions. On-line purchase recommended...look for discount codes.

Looks and functions like the OEM switch, but now, when I turn on my right turn signal, my fogs lights come on! ??? Apparently, there is a flaw inside the switch. Never did that with the original switch.

              Found on line at AA web site. Checked to see if it was in stock. Ordered it. Picked it up 10 minutes later at my local AA. Installation was easy (with the help of a YouTube video). From ordering to finished installation, less than 1 hour. Great price. Easy process. Courteous staff. I'm happy, happy, happy!

                getting the electrical connectors off was a bit of a challenge otherwise pretty simple to remove. push on a red part and pry it loose.

                The first one that I received did not work. I returned it for a replacement the same day and the second one worked. This lasted 12 months. Now, my fog lights will not go off without removing the fuse. Time for another one.

                    This was by far the cheapest new OEM replacement I could find. After a little research it was clear to me that I needed a new part because replacement of this part is needed on so many PT Cruisers. I was able to install and test this part in about 10 minutes and it has worked flawlessly for the past two weeks.

                    • Q:

                      This part is notorious for failure in the fog light switch mechanism. Other web sites are stating that their part is redesigned for longer life. Is this just like the original equipment that will again fail? Or is this part redesigned for longer life as well?

                        This is specifically manufactured for a particular vehicle model to replace the original. However, it would last longer. Worth buying for it's price.

                        Well this all depends on the skill level of whoever is removing or replacing the part. Some may have a harder time than others who have experience. I would recommend purchasing a Haynes repair manual specifically for your vehicle. This should be able to assist you further into detail on how to repair or replace specific parts.
