Headlights won't open but parking lights come on?

Asked by Jan 21, 2015 at 10:49 AM about the 1993 Chrysler Fifth Avenue

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 93 Chrysler Fifth Ave New
Yorker. When I pull the headlight
knob out the headlight covers don't
open at all but the parking lights still
come on. I can push on top of the
covers and they flip so I don't think
they are stuck closed. The headlights
aren't on behind the covers either
when I pull the knob out. Any idea of
what this could be and what I need
to do?

Dimmer switch

Ive had the same problem. Ive replaced the head light switch, pig tail , bc the 9ld one was over heating and melting the prongs that go into switch. However, it worked for a few months and then back to same old situation. The hot wire that supplies the power to lights is over heating the prongs on light switch causing it to loose connection. I have some kind of electric problem and need help too
