Headlight dashlights problem

Have a problem with the dash and rear driving lights going out when I put the head lights on. At the same time there seems to be a problem with the ignition engagement on the clutch where I have to play with the clutch and ignition to get it started. I don't know if they are connected. Any thoughts?

I would start with checking all the grounds. The dash and light switch both share a ground behind the dash. I belive the ignition switch shares same one.

Take off ur dash and take the little silver metal promgs that stick out the back and twist each of them 15 degrees with needle nose pliers to help them make a more solid connection. Worked for me on mine!

Wish I got home early so I could take this advice and run with it. While I am eating up the advice how about what is a good receiver hitch for my jeep, I'm looking forward to getting a trailer to pack up and go camping

Would you be interested in getting a whole new rear bumper with a 2 inch recieve rhitch built in? Be prepared to pay 300$ for a good quaility one and some of them even come with a cool spare tire carrier and offer some good body protection!
