Does this mean I get a new headlight switch for my car? It is all melted an all. Had to bypass the dimmer and hard wire it to get the dash lights to work

No Mike... They won't replace your headlight switch. That TSB is for a headlight module, not the switch.

To my knowledge ...they never acknowledged the switch problem and you are the 4th 95 that I've heard of with issues.

Jim... you need to read the TSB ... module..not switch.
