whatr is it
Chrysler Mechanic: Chris, Technician replied 2 months ago

It is the actual headlight switch/stalk that has failed and causing this. The switch will be replaced and I guarantee this will fix it. In the meantime you can remove the fuse for the fog lights. Give me a minute to tell you which fuse to pull. I will be right back.

Okay, remove fuse # 8 in the fuse box inside of the vehicle at the left side of the dash. That will prevent the fog lamps from coming on until you get the headlight switch replaced.

If you do your own repairs and want to replace the switch yourself, let me know and I will send you the procedure for doing so.

StanSayre, PA

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
