Head Lights/Parking Light??

Hi, I have a 1996 F250 4x4 5 speed truck that I am having troubles with my lights. I was coming home last night and as I was coming down the road all my lights quit working. exterior lights and interior lights. if I would wiggle the switch they would flicker back on and I can pull the high beam lever and the headlights come on. I tried a new switch and didn't cure it... any ideas? thanks

Sounds like a short somewhere. If you have trailer hookups check that harness out. I had a truck that would do the same thing when id hit a big bump.

i would guess a bad connection within the headlight switch itself

94.5 F250 Reg Cab 4x4 5 speed 4.10 276000 plus miles

97 F350 Crew Cab LB 4x4 5 speed 3.55 320000 plus miles (parts truck)
