1994 mustang light switch connection problem

my connection on my light switch to turn on my dash lights and my tail lights is bad. the wire is loose and i keep losing connection so driving at night has become a hassle. ive tried using electral tape to tape the wire tight to the assembly but its not a good solution considering im trying to sell the car. does anyone have or had this problem in the past? Should i go to a junk yard and cut the assembly out leaving the wires and splice them all together? any advice asap would be great considering someone is trying to buy my car friday.

Can't you just repair the connector?
Most of them have 2-3 "wings" you can press in to remove the connector.
They make tools to remove them, but it can be done with a small tube that will just fit over the pin or a small screwdriver will work sometimes too.
Once you have it out just solder the wire in place, let it cool and push it back into the connector block.

Re: 1994 mustang light switch connection problem

i dont own a sodering kit but i have thought of doing that. i was just hoping that there may be an easy fix out there. but if thats my only choice other then cutting the wires i will just have to find someone who owns one. thanks for the help

You're welcome.


I would only cut the wires as a very last resort. They are never the same afterwards and if you do they would need to be soldered too, to insure a good connection. Otherwise you or someone else is almost guaranteed wiring problems down the road.
