    My blinker/wiper/high beam/cruise stalk has become broken and the high beams are the only lights on, and i can't switch back to the lows. Where is the high beam switch in the dash? Also, could i just switch the lights or wiring in the front of the truck so the lows are on? or are the PN's for all the headslights the same? I dont have time or any desire whatsoever to tear apart the column and fix this weekend...oh yeah my steering wheel doesn't really lock anymore when the ignition is off...

    no mine is a switch on the column stalk, has a rod that goes somewhere...really not feeling like working on it out here, but i have to drive 350 miles on sunday...hopefully without the high beams on.

    I have a similar problem, only I don't have high beams. Don't know it for a fact, but I suspect you can switch the connections on the lights until you can replace the switch. Replacing that switch is not fun.
