1968-1982 Corvette Headlight Switch Removal and Installation
You pull your Corvette Headlight switch knob out and your lights go on. All of a sudden they go out, then come back on for no apparent reason. Maybe all of the dash lights have gone out or they only come on at one position on the knob. Do not fear. Your Corvette is not possessed. You just need a new headlight switch. The internals of the switch may have become damaged or worn causing the switch to overheat and the lights to go out. As the switch cools, the lights come back on. Overheats again and out they go.
