I had this issue with my 97 Dodge as well. When you changed the switch did you closely examine the wiring harness plug? Mine was damaged inside due to melting and it was causing a sporadic short. I had to cut the end and replace the connector. I also have heard of cases where the switch shorting caused wires lower down in the harness to heat up and melt the casing causing shorts. I also had this problem on a 1997. found out the same thing. the headlamp wire gets very hot. I got a whole kit with my switch and spliced the whole new multi-connector plug on the harness

Do it Yourself Headlight Replacement?

It is possible to take a car or truck to an automotive repair shop to have a headlight replaced when it has gone out. Headlight replacement is a relatively easy task, however, that can be done at home by anyone who knows how to use a screwdriver. Determine That the Headlight Needs to be Replaced The first step is to find out if the old headlight really needs to be replaced. It is possible that the light has stopped working for reasons other than it has burned out. Check to make sure that the fuse for the headlights is still good. Wiggle the headlight or screw it in more tightly to make sure that the connection is sound. If that does not work, remove the headlight and look to see if the filament has been broken. If so, you will need to find a replacement headlight. Purchase the Correct Headlight There are several different kinds of headlights because there are several different kinds of cars. Many of the cars produced in the last 10 years are equipped with headlights that are not supposed to be removed from the car. The only part that has to be replaced on these cars is the tiny bulb that fits in behind the headlight. You can remove the bulb by twisting it and pulling it free from the headlight assembly. Some older cars require that you purchase the entire headlight assembly in order to replace a burned out bulb. You can find a list of headlights for all makes and models at your local auto parts store. Removing the Headlight and Replacing it When you have the replacement bulb and are ready to put it in the car, all you have to do is reverse the action you took to pull out the old headlight. If you are only replacing the bulb, slip the new bulb into the base and then push it through the hole in the back of the headlight. Twist it to make sure it is secure and you are done. If you need to replace the entire headlight assembly, unscrew the screws that attach the headlight to the car. Disconnect the old light and connect the new one.

I replaced the headlight in my 1993 Chevy S10 and now neither of the headlights work and the high beam indicator won't shut off how do I go about fixing this issue?

Probably have a "dimmer switch problem" The switch is mounted on the side of the steering column and can be replaced easily. Using a test light, 3 wires are at the switch. the wire coming down from the headlight switch that should be hot when headlight switch is activated. The other two are outputs which go to the high or low circuit of the headlights respectively.Easy to fix with a 12 volt test light for troubleshooting.
