the switch is burned out, checked...is burned out at one pin.

Replace switch will not stop the problem, as the wiring from the connector that goes into the switch has one wire burned down.

CANNOT SOURCE THE REPLACEMENT CONNECTOR IN CANADA...CAN SOMEONE HELP ME FROM THIS GREAT GROUP?

PLEASE....

THANKS,

KSJKATO

Are you talking about the harness for the headlight switch wiring harness?

the needed parts are the connector with wiring, that will plug into the Headlight switch (no fog lamps).

The connector with the wires coming out of it, for a few inches, so it can be spliced into the existing harness.

Have you tried a junkyard? It's not a part that commonly goes bad, so that is where I would start.

Morad Parts could probably hook you up on the cheap.

Yeah, there's 3 U-picks just down the street from me, with plenty of Impala's, but it's 75 F outside. The bone yards in Canada might be under 6 feet of snow right now. GM probably only lists a complete dash wiring harness, but there are aftermarket companies who do sell connectors with 1 foot of wire. Just hit the bone yard. GARY

u guys have hit the spot...it is the connector to the harness that needs replacing, but the wiring is compromised for one of the wires, so the pigtail of wires is required.
Trying to find in junkyards, but no luck so far.
yes, some snow, but mostly deep freeze.
they seem to be sitting around on trees where you are....

lol

Well I just got back from the local U-pick, & I looked at a harness from a 2000, & a 2004. The pins are the same. So I got the best one. Looks new, & I got 15" of the harness with it. There is a tag # 15371912 on the harness, but that can change from year to year. It is dated 02/01/2000.
If you can't find one in Canada, I would send it to you for the price of a padded envelope, & postage. The harness was free to me, as I bought other stuff too. If you find one there, I'll just keep it as a spare. I know my relatives in Montreal just got 17" of snow. Let me know if you want it. GARY

The connector, & wiring you need are in the mail heading to the great white north. I re used an envelope I had laying around, & the shipping was only $3.30. Me, being an ex hoser from Montreal, I'm glad to help out somebody still living there. Years ago I used to make 2 trips a year by car to Montreal. I would take orders & bring clean sheet metal to Canada, & on the return trip I would bring interior parts that were not beat to death by the sun back to Florida. The workers in the Montreal body shop would freak when I showed up with non rusty 20 year old Road Runner doors. Anyway, happy new year. GARY

Hey Gary....

so the first mechanic brought the part back from Phoenix, and he got it installed...cost so much for the back and forth, and have fired him, and got a different mech...
have now been to him, and got a tranny flushed properly, the engine light is off, and the abs light does not come on as often, and the car is running awesome at themoment, even though we had a really cold winter.
hope you got my package i sent from miami beach...perhaps a taste of Canada
hope you are well..

Thanks so much for the Canadian chocolate bars. DELICIOUS. My parents just got back to Montreal yesterday after spending the winter here in Florida. This winter was real tough in Montreal. Let me know if you need any other "Florida" parts. GARY
