The headlight switch is built into the blinker switch and must be replaced as a unit. First a couple of WARNINGS IT WOULDN'T BE A BAD IDEA TO DISABLE THE AIR BAGS WHILE YOUR WORKING ON THE STEERING COLUMN, I DIDNT WHEN I REPLACED THIS SWITCH TWICE BUT THATS ME.


The one exception would be when disabling the air bags there is one yellow wire you disconect. But that should only be done following the proper instructions that i cant rember right now.

After all that remove the tilt steering lever, it just twists out.

Remove the four or five anti-tamper torx screws from the bottom of the column cover. {you need special anti-tamper torx bits, get them at any parts store}

Remove the top column cove, it just snaps off.

Remove the screws holding the blinker switch assembly and unplud the harness.

Replace with new part and put everything back together

Why would the bright light indicator continuously remain on on a 1998 Pontiac Sunfire?

When you operate the bright/dim switch, do the lights ever switch between high and low beam, or are they stuck in the high beam mode? If your headlight switch is like mine, and is part of the turn signal/headlight/dimmer/cruise stalk, you might need to replace it. It's about a $60 part and is a reasonable do it yourself job.
