I have a 1994 Dodge Dakota and my headlights will not turn on when it is cold outside (below zero). When I pull the knob all that turns on are the parking lights.

I was thinking that however why would the switch only have issues in the cold? I would of thought if the switch was bad it would happen no matter what the temp is. Then again for under $20 and a few mins of time it is worth a try

I have the same exact issue with the exact same model/year 1994 Dodge Dakota SLT 4x4 club cab pickup. High beams work. Headlights don't work. Also blower motor isn't turning on, radio doesn't turn on, windows don't work, power locks don't work, on board trip computer on ceiling has no power to it. There has to be a solution to this, that somebody knows. It seems fairly common. It is not the HEADLIGHT SWITCH or the Blinker Switch. I've replaced these without any change. I bought the vehicle like this. no fuses are blown. The battery terminals are replaced. It doesn't seem to be a ground issue. Am I really going to have to hard wire my headlights, my radio, and my heater fan all on separate new switches? Etc!! Or can someone who has truly seen this package issue HELP ME!?? Please and thank you!! Sincerely
