Damn that blue text is hard to read.

Follow the link to the online FSMs in my sig, and have a look at the 98 TJ FSM, there's a better picture of the switch in the 98 FSM. Headlamp switch is in the instrument panel systems section. Looks like an easy job.

If it doesn't work properly, look for the service manual link at the bottom of the page.
