headlights bein weird

Hey all
today I started the truck, turned on the parking lights let her warm up listening to the sweet sound of the ebpv on high idle (man thats sexy loud) anyways, took her off hi idle and went to leave so I pulled the headlight knob out, nuthing. popped the hood fiddled with this and that, did this a few times, long story short my knee hit the brights lever and the lights popped on, also last night cruisin around sometimes the blinkers didnt work.
Im gonna try taking the black steering column pieces off to see if anythings broke or dirty, any help would be appreciated
Thanks
Dan

Re: headlights bein weird

you can get the switch from LMC truck part # 47-08917 or from or National Parts Depot the switch from lmc is cheaper.

Either switch should be available at normal parts places I think. Seems like I have gotten them for other Ford stuff there.

Re: headlights bein weird

ok, got it apart, and theres a 3 wire harness that the turn signal lever has on it, one of the wires broke, both auto places here in town dont have it, and both said repairing the wire will do no good because Id never get the assembly put back together correctly. Anyways thats what it is.
