    Is this a plow truck? Do you have a switch to select truck headlights or plow frame lights?

    I looked it up when I first bought my 99. If I remember right it's not real hard. At least you don't have to pull the steering wheel off .

    It is a plow truck.I have the fisher MM1 so the lights switch automatically when cables plugged in.Iam pretty positive it has nothing to do with the plow lights .Iam sure it is the multi function switch.Could wiggle it and get to come on.Any tips for getting off plastic parts on column..

    The multi function switch is easy to change.you need a phillips torks and long nail or pointed screw driver. set the ign. to run in the lower cover their is a small hole stick the long nail to push the lease botton pull the ign switch out. remove the phillips screws tilt rod if equiped pulls covers off unbolt to torxs screws that hold the switch unplug 2 wire connectors replace. you should be able to do the whole job in less than 1 hour. If your good it wont take more than 15 min. getting the ign switch out will give you the most grief if you have never removed one. when you get the feel for it. it will only take 10sec to remove . hope this helps Tim
