Head Lamp Switch May Fail on Dodge Grand Caravan

Problem Description and Possible Solution

A failing head lamp switch can cause the head lamps and/or instrument cluster lighting to flicker or dim. The head lamp switch should have a noticeable click between each position; a "mushy" feel is a strong indication of a failing switch.

Just noticed that when driving one day my lights were flickering and then it stopped but after reading this post I knoiw that my switch is Mushy so I will be fixing that
My headlight switch must be going bad. It does not have a notchy click and some times I must turn the switch on and off a few times to get the lights to go off
Lost head lights on interstate four times. then could not get them back on. I checked for recalls and found the problems in complaints. I will change this part but this is a serious issue due to safety. I could have been killed. The bright lights and fog lights worked but no head lamps. Please try and get these parts to a recall, it is very dangerous.
When the car was new the transmission clunked between 1-2, so I took it to the dealer who said they fixed it. In reality it then started clunking between 2-3, so I took it back and was told it was a design falt. It was a company furnished car and I was very busy so I just continued to drive it. In time I bought it. I learned if I put hi test gas in it it was better. If I anticipate the shift and let up a little it shifts like it should. If I have it fully loaded it does shift like it should. there may be something wrong with the software or training procedures.
Allheadlights will flick on and off and now the alarm horn is sounding too. the only way to stop it is to pull my tail light fuse. Very annoying.
