Default Headlight switch

Hey, I just got a 2001 Ranger and was wondering if the headlight switch was illuminated at all. Same question for the power window panel...is it suppose to light up?

Only the headlight switch lights up not the power window switches. I'll see if I can't find the link for the write up on how to convert the headlamp switch to an LED.

But I don't understand what part lights up? The parking light sign and the headlight sign?

I wish they had lights in them. It would make it a lot easier to find them at night.

Check out my ad HERE, I mod the bulb holders with LED's... Much better than the old, dim bulbs.

^^^^^^^^^^^^Get the LED conversions from Buggman^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^.
Plug-and-play, plus you can't get just the bulb from Ford-you need to buy the whole switch to get the bulbs. While you're at it, do the 4x4 and foglight switch (if you have them). Great product, great results!
