Default Need light switch wiring diagram for 06' PT

Both headlights dont have power going to them. I suspect its the cluster but I need to rule out the headlight switch. Does anyone have a wiring diagram for the headlight switch of a 2006 PT?

might be as close as you're gonna get. before you drive yourself nuts chasing a ghost, you might inspect the fuses under the hood, disconnect the battery and step on the brake a few times and try again. if that fails, go see if the dealer can turn them on for you.

please come back and let us know the solution once you find it.

in 2006, this is what they have instead of a diagram:


OPERATION
The left (lighting) multi-function switch uses resistor multiplexing to control the many functions and features it provides using a minimal number of hard wired circuits. The switch then sends electronic switch status messages over the Local Interconnect Network (LIN) to the Cab Compartment Node (CCN) and then the CCN sends messages over the Controller Area Network (CAN) data bus to the Totally Integrated Power Module (TIPM) other electronic modules in the vehicle.

For lighting and wiper function it sends the messages over the LIN bus to the CCN and the CCN puts them out on the CAN bus to the other modules. The left switch has the microprocessor for all communication to the TIPM. The SCCM is composed of a clockspring and left lighting switch and a right wiper switch. The TIPM, controls the lighting and wiper functions.

The left multi-function switch can be diagnosed using LIN based diagnostic tools and methods. However, the most reliable, efficient and accurate means to diagnose this component requires the use of a diagnostic scan tool. Refer to the appropriate diagnostic information.

EXTERIOR LIGHTING
Following are descriptions of how the left multi-function switch is operated to control the many exterior lighting functions and features it provides:

Front Fog Lamps - The optional front fog lamps are requested when the left multi-function switch control knob is pulled outward to the front fog lamps detent position. The left multi-function switch sends an electronic switch status message over the LIN bus to the CCN, then over the CAN data bus to the other electronic modules in the vehicle. The switch control knob incorporates an internal cam mechanism that will only allow the front fog lamps to be selected while the headlamp On position is also selected, and will automatically move the control knob to the front fog lamps Off position when the control knob is rotated to deselect the headlamps.
Headlamps - The headlamps are requested when the left multi-function switch control knob is rotated to the headlamps on detent position. The left multi-function switch sends an electronic switch status message over the LIN bus to the CCN, then over the CAN data bus to the other electronic modules in the vehicle.
Headlamp Beam Selection - The headlamp beams are selected when the left multi-function switch control stalk is pushed forward. The left multi-function switch sends an electronic switch status message over the LIN bus to the CCN, then over the CAN data bus to the other electronic modules in the vehicle. Each time the control stalk is actuated in this manner, the headlamp beams are toggled from the current selection to the opposite selection.
Headlamp Optical Horn - The headlamp optical horn is selected each time the left multi-function switch control stalk is pulled rearward to a momentary position just short of the beam selection detent position. The headlamp high beams will remain illuminated for as long as the control stalk is held in this momentary position and the previously selected beams will be restored when the control stalk is released. The left multi-function switch sends an electronic switch status message over the LIN bus to the CCN, then over the CAN data bus to the other electronic modules in the vehicle.

Lighting is controlled by the TIPM (module located below the fusebox in the engine compartment). I would suspect the problem to be a fuse or a relay in the TIPM or the MF switch itself. I highly doubt it would be the cluster.

Check if other lighting functions on the multi-function switch work. I.E. does the dimmer switch work for internal lighting? Does the high beam switch work? The MF switch communicates to the cluster over a LIN bus. The cluster then sends the lighting request to the TIPM over the CAN bus.

All of the fuses and relays check out. The dimmer switch and the high beams both work.

Since the dimmer and high beams work, that means that the LIN network from the switch to the cluster is good and so is the CAN network from the cluster to the TIPM. This pretty much leaves the switch.
