I have a 1997 wrangler and recently been having problems with the headlights turning on. When I pull the switch I have to fiddle with the pull out knob to get where they stay on. I figure it may be the headlight switch assembly? I am at the point where i unplugged the 2 wiring harness to the switch. How do I remove the switch and pull out knob? I dont see any screws holding it in place. any help would be appreciated. thanks

The switch is held in place by two screws on the front of the dash underneath the lower plastic panel that the switch protrudes through. Remove the two screws that hold the lower plastic panel on and then pull it over the headlight knob, the panel hinges from the bottom.

search this forum for this topic as someone recently did a very nice write-up with pictures on replacing the headlight switch on a TJ. i did this repair myself on my '02 a few months ago and it is a very easy job. as was said above just remove the two screws holding the black plastic steering wheel shroud, pull the shroud off the steering column and you will see the headlight switch screws (torx).

get a replacement switch from Autozone not the dealer, I made that mistake and threw away 60 bucks.

Pull out switch or High Beam/Low beam switch

My 1997 Wrangler Sport has the headlight issue. It seems that it isn't the headlight switch but more like the High Beam/Low beam stalk. When I have had the lights on and pull the stalk to put on the high beams, the headlights shut off. Very disturbing on a dark road! I have seen some comments but have not been able to determine if the fix is with the stalk switch or if it is in the pull out light switch. Any help would be appreciated.
