    Comments about CARQUEST by BWD Headlight Switch:

    While the switch was fully compatible in terms of fit and power connections it did not remain fully functional long. Using brights often results in shorting out of all lights, and the first time I turned on the interior lights, they never turned off - had to pull the bulbs. Removing the switch revealed why - the thin, low quality metal tang that closes the circuit to turn on the interior lights fails to spring back to normal position after the cam pushes it down.

        I read the reviews on this switch and one person said it did not work, but I bought it anyway. They were right, the switch fits perfectly on the car, but does not work! It only turned on the headlights and nothing else. No dash lights, no tail lights, no parking lights. Do not buy this switch as you are wasting your time and money.

              There is no pin for the parking lihgts so you can not use just the parking lights.
