1. Obtain a Headlight switch for the vehicle at a local NAPA or Ford dealer parts counter.2. Disconnect the negative terminal at the battery. (Small post or Black cable).3. Remove the bottom cover below the steering column. The cover(s) around the left lower area and right lower areas/radio/ashtray should pop/snap or pry off. *****WATCH OUT*** REMOVE the TWO Phillips head screws inside the open slot above ashtray. There are some small hex/Phillips head screws to remove now. They are around the guage panel. The Headlight pull knob should fit through the dash panel hole.4. Remove the 2 screws holding the headlight switch bracket. The switch pull knob is released by pushing in a small button on the bottom of the headlight switch. Pull out on knob while pressing this button in. Same in reverse for putting back in. (Note the shafts triangular shape. Fits back in same way.)5. Pull off wire harness and install new switch ***CHECK the tightness off the terminals, on the new switch, to the female connections and spades on the harness.) If needed the females can be squeezed flat slightly to make a TIGHT connection. If these connections are loose, the contacts will burn and the switch will fail again.6. Replace all panels in reverse order and connect negative battery cable.7. Start and try switch and DRIVE the vehicle 7 to 10 miles to reset the computer to your driving habits.8. Clock and radio channels may have to be reset.

Why don't the headlights work on your 1995 ford ranger?

AnswerIf the lights work on the flash to pass but do not work otherwise either the switch is bad or the dimmer switch is bad. I just am working on a 1995 Ranger and found the dimmer switch to be bad. I checked the headlight switch and that was good so I found the dimmer switch to be the problem. I jumped the wires after unplugging the dimmer switch and lights come on. Replace the headlight dimmer switch and good to go! Hope this helps.

How do you change the headlight switch in a 1995 Ford Explorer?

If it is the dash switch ( to turn the headlights on), then you have to take the dash a part. If it is the switch on the column, you have to remove your ignition lock cylinder (put the key in and turn it to on, NOT start, and poke the pin in the bottom of the cylinder, then pull the cylinder out of the column). Remove the steering column cover (top and bottom). The switch is held on by 2 Torx screws. THIS SWITCH IS THE MOST COMMON CAUSE OF FORD HEADLIGHT RELATED PROBLEMS
