I purchased a headlight control switch #946613 along with a complete wiring harness for my CJ2A. According to the wiring diagram Parkway lights and rear taillights are on separate terminals. When I pull the switch out halfway the front park lights and the rear taillights come on. When I pull all the way out the headlights come on and the taillights remain on, but the front park lights go out. Is this the normal operation? I would like the front park lights to remain on when the headlights are on

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
You probably can change the wiring. Email to help.

My Headlights quit working. pull the switch to the first position, the running lights work. Pull to the second position, np headlights. they were working, then just quit working! Is it my switch? 1946 CJ2A converted to 12 volt.

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
Probably in your switch. We can help you. Call us toll free.

Did the 46 cj2a have hazard lights?

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
Not originally.

Hello Mike, Do you have this article in 24 volts ? Where i can find only the rear part in 24 volts ? I have a ex army CJ5 all in 24 volts 1969 Thanks for yours answers

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
805400 is what they used for 24 volt.

Would your 946613 light switch also work for a 12Volt 1968 V-6? Mine just burned out - (since it's basically just a simple metal dash with a matching sized hole drilled in the one I'll remove? Thanks - all my many recent purchases from KaiserWillys have 'hit the mark'.

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
Yes, this would work for you as well thru 1971.

I have one of your light switch in my cj5 how do I remove the knob so that I can remove the switch most have a pin you press but can't find one.

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
There is a set screw then it will turn off standard thread.

Is the letters LIGHTS engraved in the knob

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
Yes, please scroll thru the multiple photo we show of it.

I purchased a restored 1950 Willys Overland one tone pickup. When I turn the headlights on (two clicks out) I have no taillights. When I turn the parking lights on (one click out) I do have taillights. Ideas?

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
Double check your wiring and connections. See link:

I assume you can wire blackout lights instead of parking lights, correct. First pull would be for BO lights and second one for regular lights?

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
Please email some more vehicle information and we can try to help out.

Do you match prices from other online sellers ?

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
As long as its apples to apples we are happy to help out.

Where can i find the best wire diagram for 56 cj5. Most are not clear enough to follow each wire point to point.

Willys Tech:
See above. There is a great detailed diagram for this switch.

Looking at this new switch,I notice theres an extra terminal on it? My old switch only had BAT, R and H?? Its going on a 69 CJ5 V6

Willys Tech:
This will be the correct one for your 69 CJ-5

Any idea where to get additional chrome face nuts that come with this? Would be nice to make the rest of my dash match it.

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
That is used only. Please email to help. Thanks!

Hi Mike - I'm connecting up the wire harness I bought from you. Great detailed drawings - thanks. One question on the headlight switch; which is the "inside terminal"? Currently on the back two terminals; I have a two red wires on the post on the back edge and nothing on the inner post. Mike

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
If you can email and we can try to help you out with your vehicle information.

I have a 1947 CJ2A that has been converted to 12 volt. I purchased a complete wiring harness, to replace the original 1947 wiring, through Kaiser Willys and rewired the entire jeep. When I put in a new battery this Fall, the headlights turned on with the switch pushed in to the "Off" position and will not shut off no matter what position the switch is in. The headlight switch is the original 1947 one. Would purchasing and replacing the original switch with this new one solve my continuously "On" headlight problem or do I have some wires crossed from the new harness to the original switch? Any information you can give me would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, Doug

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
I would double check how you have the headlight control switch wired but I would say yes, a new switch should solve the problem.

im lookin for the circuit breaker alone, mine broke when i tried to loosen one of the nuts on it (original switch has always worked great)

Clinton Gregory:
do a Google search for Bussmann CBC Type I 10-32 Stud Mount Circuit Breakers
Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
Sorry, i cant get just that. These only come in complete.

What should be wired to the left (A) position of this switch, item 946613, for my 1949 Willys CJ3A? I'm doubled up on the mid and right post. Jim

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
Please see the wiring diagram link in the item description. Thanks!

Good morning, again. This "two position" switch. First pull "Parking lights", second pull "Headlights" with "Parking lights? Much appreciated, Pete

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
Yes, this is all correct.

My 65 CJ5 does not have a switch to alternate between high/ low beam. Therefore when I turn the switch I have on it now I have off, parking lights, high beams. Is there something to switch between high/low beams?

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
805710 is the dimmer switch.

Will this work on my 53 M38A1 that has been converted over to 12 volt?

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
Yes, this is a switch that will work for either 6 or 12 volt.

Hey Guys- the old switch i have has a 20 amp fuse mounted onto it. I don't see a fuse holder on this one. do you know what the 20 fuse is protecting? I'd need to put it in line, but not sure where. thanks!

Willys Tech:
They never originally used a fuse on these vehicles. It is common to have the wired in separately aftermarket.

Are the threads on this switch plastic or metal.

Willys Tech:
The threads are metal.

I switched from 6 to 12 V system on my 1950 jeep.. also new 12V headlights, I'm using old light sw. but it gets quite hot when I turn on lights.. Is this old sw 6V ? if so will it work on 12V system..? why does sw. get so hot...?

Willys Tech:
These work on both 6 volt and 12 volt. You may want to check your wiring connections on your old one.


Willys Tech:
It is part number: 805400

Can I wire the dash light assembly I got from you onto this headlight control switch so my dash lights will come on when I pull out the headlights on my 1946 CJ2A? Thanks Again, Harry

Willys Tech:
Yes you should be able to wire it that way

Will i be able to connect the wires exactly as they came off the old switch

Willys Tech:
Yes that is correct.

Will this work with a 12 volt system?

Willys Tech:
Yes that is correct.

Please explain what wire goes to which post

Willys Tech:
Please call us toll free. We are more than happy to help out.
