headlight switch question


thanks for your time

can you tell after disassembly if the headlight switch is bad? I'm trying to troubleshoot a brake light circuit problem ( i get various messages like "1 taillight broken" and "brake circuit failure" and heard that sometimes the headlight switch is the problem (true/false?). i dont want to order a new one if mine is okay, but i thought i'd ask before i take it apart so i know what i'm looking for. i do know the lit function is not functioning (it doesnt light up, could just be the bulb).

i know also about some of the other issues with taillights like the bulb contacts (i've refurbished and think they're OK) and also the trunk wiring (it looks OK, but there'a couple places i need to pull apart if it's not the switch).

thanks again for any tips
