In order to remove the headlight switch of a 1988 Cadillac Eldorado, you must first disconnect the negative cable from the battery and allow time for the capacitors to discharge. Unscrew the headlight switch, remove the wire plugs, and remove the switch itself. Insert a new switch and replace the wire plugs and screws. Reconnect the negative cable and test the new switch.

Check the reset switch probably located on the drivers side rear in the trunk area. The switch may be corroded or shot.

It is possibly a switch problem. If you can get to the switch, put a jumper wire to the two contact points (hot side and ground) with the key on the lights should come on and then you know the problem is the switch. psg

First remove the wiper and headlight switch knobs. They will pull off with force, then you will under stand how they go back on. Remove cover under dash to view fuses. Take two screw out that hold the fuse panel. The dash cover around the wiper and headlight switch actually pops off when pryed on. Once this cover is off remove the nut around the headlight switch and it will pull out, but you need to get the fuse panel out of the way. The switch it self has a pull out bar that can also be taken out by depressing the button brad on the switch itself.

More than likely it is the headlight dimmer switch.All headlight operations go through it once you have turned them on at the switch. It can be the relay.

Thea headlight relay on a 1988 735i is located below the dash near the pedals. It can be accessed by opening a small door and pulling it from the socket.

you should check and most likely have to replace the switch that spins left and right to dim and brighten the dash lights p.s. you didnt say so you probley don't but if you do have headlight problems too than it might not be that switch>my headlight worked fine

Begin by removing the wiring connector on the back of the headlight. Remove the headlight retaining bolts. The headlight will come out.
