I thought I would post this in the 40 section for more help (hopefully).

I am having trouble with the headlight/running light switch.

If I rotate the switch 1 click to the left, I get headlights, tail lights, (no front bib lights).

Rotate the switch 2 clicks to the left, I get front bib lights, tail lights (no head lights).

Rotate the switch 1 click to right, I get tail lights only.

Are the bib light suppose to come on with the headlights? I changed out the switch, it did not make a difference, I cleaned the terminals and connectors on the inner fender as well. Any help is appreciated.

They are a parking lamp only and are not supposed to be on when the headlamps are on.
Thanks Steve,

I guess my dilema is over then :). I need to talk to you about rear disc brake brackets and rotors.

I've seen quite a few guys wire up power to the bib lights so they come on with the headlights. Not sure if it's what you want to do but there's a few threads about it.

Here's a link to Treeroot's online owners manual: 64 FJ40 Manual

Page 8 covers the light switch.

Thanks Dom.

What is a meter pilot lamp? Instrument lights?????
