Did exactly what I purchased it to do

Comments about CARQUEST by BWD Headlight Switch:

Replaced a headlight switch that was going bad after about 20 years. Price was great. Installation was straightforward with the help of some instructional videos on removing the dashboard panels.

    Comments about CARQUEST by BWD Headlight Switch:

    I bought this to replace the original one in my truck that had failed after 17 years. After not even two months, I lost all dashboard lighting and had to play with the switch to get it in just the right spot that it would turn on my dash lights when the headlights were on. I don't know how something so seemingly easy to manufacture fails so quickly, being that it is just copper contacts and a plastic shell. NOT a quality product, will NOT buy this brand again.

      Comments about CARQUEST by BWD Headlight Switch:

      I bought this for my 98 Dodge Dakota because mine broke. I installed it and when I turned my lights on I had no dash lights. After taking it back apart and checking everything out I exchanged it for another one. Put in the new one and no dash lights. I went to another chain and bought a Duralast. I put it in and now I have dash lights. The dimmer wheel inside the switch is painted black. The paint prevents it from making contact. I wasted alot of time trying to figure out what was wrong with my truck when the switch was designed wrong.

            While this unit was the lowest priced unit listed in the on-line catalog for my 1998 Dodge RAM 1500, it works fine and is as easy to install as others would be. Longterm life will take years to determine. As in almost all older vehicles, the entire headlight load passes through this switch rather than a headlight relay. Therefore it is subject to failure.
            If you install any higher amp lights, I would recommend the addition of a separate headlight relay. I chose not to go this route since I believe the switch I replaced was the original and therefore lasted 15 years. Time will tell.

            This switch went out and I replaced it with this brand. Within a couple of weeks I had to replace it again because this brand did not hold up. Of course the store replaced it with the same brand and now months later I'm having to replace it again. This switch has caused my headlights to go on an off while driving at night. Not what I would recommend for an replacement part, I'm just glad that it did not cause any type of accident or tickets on my part. Any other brand has to be better than this one.

            This switch lasted 5 days. I replaced it with a Duralast which has a lifetime warranty. Don't waste your time with this brand.

            • Q:

              Headlights would not turn off reliably when car was off. Battery brand new. Even when headlights off, noticed that dome lights and interior floor lights would not turn off. Dash lights unresponsive. Popped out all of the interior bulbs which would not turn off and let sit for three days. Now nothing happens when I turn the key. So I disconnected battery cable pending daylight diagnostics. Any suggestions?

                With out the presence of your vehicle we would not be able to properly diagnose it. We would suggest taking your vehicle to a certified mechanic for a proper diagnosis.
