Yes it is one of those 'does everything but butter your bread' switchs, and is most likely the culprit. I just don't want to replace it only to find the problem is some strange electronic malfuntion or due to streching a wire when in hi-beam mode. (plus of course it only happens once in a whle)

Well you'll spend as much time and money on a wire by wire diagnosis as you would taking a chance on this switch, seems to me. I hate to encourage "guessing" but in electrical matters, sometimes an educated guess is the best course IMO.

Its an NHTSA number, so you will likely have to play their game to get the info.
It isn't in the manufacturer's database, so it is one of those numbers that NHTSA has pulled out of thin air.
#525 of 549 Thunderbird in UK
Sep 24, 2009 (3:15 pm)
I am a new user to this site and just logged on tonight so hi to you all.
Please can anyone help?
I am in the UK. I have a 2002 Thunderbird. I just love it and it is a rare beast over here. Can anyone suggest where I can get a service manual from All traces so far have prooved fruitless. Haynes do not seem to do one. Do I have to go direct to Ford?
Can anyone tell me how often the recommended service should be?
What oil do you suggest.
What air filter is best.
It seems to "Smell" hot after a few blasts but not temperature wise. anyone know of any issues.
Have been told to fit cool air intake . Any comments would be fantastic as you guys over the pond certainly know how to build your cars.
By the way I am a total novice at all this - and even worse - I am female !! So I need all the help I can get.
Look forward to your comments.

#528 of 549 TSB's for 2001 intrepid 3.5 V6
Dec 13, 2009 (8:56 am)
Hi all - I have a 2001 intrepid r/t with 125,000 effortless miles. I recently have developed 2 reocurring issues:
1. The inner tie rods I believe have a tsb for them
2. code on computer basically saying "replace me."
Does anyone know of tsb's for these issues. I am down and out on my luck financially due to job loss and would appreciate any help.

Didn't find anything quite like that, searching a couple of databases. I presume you know of course that a TSB is only an advisory to a dealer and he is under no obligation to perform the task, and he can charge you for it at any rate.
There is this one elusive TSB numbered bulletin Number: 1900101, march 2001, that I can't find any details about---something about clunks in the steering. This goes under NHTSA ITEM NUMBER - 619127--so maybe you can go on the NHTSA site and track it down that way.
I didn't see anything about a faulty computer, sorry.
