Low beams died, then high beams next day,last week,
on 82 Ram 50.
Taillights and instrument lights are working. I have three, all 82, but two have not driven for at least a decade.
In San Diego. Visit to Ecology showed only one , a month ago, from which I was lucky to get a needed transmission control arm. No other corpses seen, a big change from decades past.
Removed dashboard mounted lightswitch, after wasting $$ on two new sealed beam headlights, which did not light up.
Switch seems to be MB141222. Would MB113405 work, or could I adapt something from the 1986/87 through about 1994 second body version of that truck? None seen at wreckers that day.
Can those switches be fixed? Or, is there any aftermarket replacement or kit? If all else fails, could make a three switch, one potentiometer ( or something more modern) circuit board to mount to the left of my left knee.
Want to avoid cannibalizing the other two 82s., though one probably has warped head, as well as rust. Other had loud tick (valves?) when shut off and pushed to driveway about ten years ago.
All are 2.6L automatics, ex-Navy.
Where can one get taillight lenses for the 79 to 86?
