Yeah, I think I have one in an old toolbox somewhere. Haven't used it in a while. The switch works for the parking and headlamps. It's the kind you pull out for the foglights. Is the relay under the hood?

Yes, the relay will be under the hood in the fuse/relay box. Do you know how to check the power and grounds to a relay?

Internet says it's the switch, I'll look at it when I feel like some dash disassembly.

Did you verify this at the relay connections?

No, not yet. The Haynes manual isn't very specific when it comes to relays. The picture looks like the power distribution center is maybe near the master cylinder? Are the individual relays marked and do I just test it for continuity? Or were you saying I should use the light (I found it) to check for power to the relay?
It's pouring rain so I don't know if I'll get to it today. I also have a table saw to build at school today. It's a cabinet saw so I hope I can drum up some help, lol.

Maddog, You said you replaced the steering shaft on your '99, did you have to file new "flats" for the set screws? If so, how did you accomplish this?
Thanks,
