And if you were close I'd let it make your day. Wiring issues drive me to distraction.

When I replaced the plug I did one wire at a time so as not to mix up the placements. I'm pretty sure I got that part right.

If possible, find a similar truck at an auto wrecker....or a friends and see if you can verify the wiring. Take a camera and take pix from all possible angles so you can refer to them later.

I just found some information on the 1996 headlight switch, complete with light switch connector information.....as in all 9 wires.

Pin B2 has the Pink/Red wire and in in the center of a longer side. It has pin D to the right and B3 to the left.

In front of B2 (an off to the side a bit) are -
H - (Tot he right side) with a Light green wire
P - To the left and angled with a Light green / white wire
Further in front (at the opposite side of the connector) is pin R with the Black/Yellow wire. This is the park light feed wire.

Does this sound like what yours is?

BTW, I didn't cover all the wires, just enough for you to get reference to the angle I'm looking at it.

Picked up a new Mopar switch from the Dodge dealer this afternoon. Just got home and will put it in first thing in the morning. Keeping fingers crossed...
