Heck,
If you can screw in a light bulb, you can swap your bulb holders

It's a bulb assembly, as far as I know Ford makes you buy the entire switch and doesn't sell just the bulb holder.
Here's a pic of one of my LED modded bulb holders...

$8.00 each shipped USA, Canada may be a little more due to "international" shipping.

You can even choose the color... blue, red, green or white. There's no color filter behind the headlight icons, so whatever color led you use will be the color that shows.

Arrow Re: Headlight Switch Light Always On?

Does anyone have a wiring diagram for the headlight harness?

I'm in the process now of wiring up the headlight switch so that it's illuminated but wanted to verify what wire keeps the headlight icons on?

It's only 6 wires on the harness.

Thanks,
-Nigel
