How to Replace the Broken Headlight Switch in Chevrolet Truck

If the headlights have stopped working your Chevrolet truck, you may have a defective headlight switch. The h11 headlight switch allows you to turn the low lights, as well as change their brightness. Although Chevrolet has produced a wide variety of trucks, including the S-10 and Silverado, the process for installing a new headlight switch remains relatively similar for each model. Wait for all the work to take about 30 minutes from start to finish.
