Anyone know how the brights attach to the wiper switch?
 
Well I just replace my wiper switch because my jeep seemed to lack one, haha, but I cant figure out how the high beams are supposed to connect to the multifunction stick thing. Ya, I just said that. I've got a 92' YJ if anyone can maybe take a pic or walk me through it because I wasted my money on the autozone brand owners manual that is about as informative as toilet paper. Thanks!

Well Idk about YJ's, but on TJ's the bright switch is on the turn signal arm, not the wiper arm....

In all likelyhood, it's that way on the YJ too.

Well on the pre 2000 TJ's there's a knob on the dash, but I just thought maybe he was trying to install it on the wrong arm.... :confused:

Wiper Switch
1 Disconnect battery ground cable.
2 Remove turn signal switch, refer to Vehicle Lighting/Turn Signals/Turn Signal Switch/Service and Repair
3 Remove ignition lock
4 Remove column-to-instrument panel mounting nuts, then disconnect wiper switch electrical connector.
5 Remove column mounting bracket-to-column attaching bolts, then the bracket and allow column to drop down.
6 Remove ignition and dimmer switches

Turn Signal Switch
1. Disconnect battery ground cable.
2. Remove steering wheel, refer to Steering and Suspension/Steering/Steering Wheel/Service and Repair .
3. Using suitable tool, remove cover from lock plate, then remove lock plate as follows:
1. Identify steering shaft thread type. Metric shafts have an identifying groove on steering wheel locating splines as shown.
2. Mount lock plate compressor tool No. J-23653 or equivalent on steering shaft, using forcing bolt tool No. J-23653-A on models with metric steering shafts.
3. Tighten nut on tool to compress upper bearing preload spring, then remove and discard lock plate retaining ring.
4. Loosen nut on tool, then remove tool and lock plate.

4. Remove turn signal canceling cam, upper bearing preload spring and thrust washer from steering shaft.
5. Move turn signal actuating lever in right turn position and remove lever.
6. Remove hazard warning switch button from steering column.
7. Remove turn signal electrical connector harness from column mounting bracket and disconnect connector.
8. Remove turn signal switch attaching screws, then pull switch and electrical connector harness from steering column.
9. Reverse procedure to install.

I copied this out of the factory service manual but it has no other info on the dimmer switches

On my 94 YJ the headlights are controlled by 'rocker' switches on the lower left hand corner of the dashboard...under the guage cluster...and the high beam 'clicker' is on the turn signal switch-you pull 'forward' to click it. On my 03 rubicon TJ, everything is controlled on the turnsignal stem, nothing on the dash.

That's what I was asking about... There's a rod like hanger wire that runs along the steering column and has a 90 degree bend at the end and sits right behind the wiper switch. I just need to know how it hooks into the multifunction lever.

Did you find a picture of this? I've got the same problem
