Workhorse Headlights Turn Off!

My headlights seem to hesitate when I go from low beam to high beam or visa versa. Sometimes they go off for a moment! This can be scary driving at night, needless to say. Any ideas?
This is on a 03 Pace Arrow Workhorse with the switch/stock mounted on the steering column.

Looking for a head light dimmer switch for the above problem! I called Workhorse, but they were not much help.

How do you call a company that does not exist? Do you still have the number? Thanks,
Ed

I have lights!

I finally took the Pace Arrow into a heavy duty GMC repair shop last week. After a lot of searching they found a replacement switch at O'Reilly Auto Parts! Part #26100985 is the old GM number for the column headlight switch.

Workhorse parts department is called Uptime Parts a division of Navistar. Navistar kept this part of Workhorse but sold the rest including the name to AMP who is now making the Workhorse step van chassis again according to their website. You can call Uptime Parts but they only sell to Workhorse Service Centers, so you have to order your parts through those centers. The contact info is http://uptimeparts.com/contact.html

I got through to them by calling main number 630-231=5406. Greg

Yes, I'm aware of all that.

I asked the OP what number he called because he posted that "Workhorse" was not helpful, and I wanted to know what part of Workhorse isn't helpful. Unfortunately, the only reply I got from the OP was "ttt", and I'm not smart enough to know what that means.

I'd also like to know if calling UTP got you any info, or did they just suggest you contact an ASC, since they won't sell directly to us owners. THANKS, Ed

Stano,

Had you looked on my web site you would have found that part number under the MISC section in the RV Chassis Parts W Series.

Yes they at least confirmed to me that they were working with Meritor on the fix for the UFO chassis abs ecu software modification to fix the wrong dash light messages caused by replacement ecus from Meritor. But that was just info at the customer service level. Greg

I see it now! I just added your great web site to my Favorites!
Maybe you could change it to read; turn signal/headlight control.
