Dimmer switch problem

I got the wiring done on my 67 and was checking the lights. All the lights worked but I noticed the once in a while when I press down on the dimmer switch to turn the high beams on I get no head lights at all. If I wiggle the switch side to side a little with my foot the high beams will come on.

Has anyone had this problem before? Do I need to replace the switch or can I fix it?

They're just a few bucks and install easily.

Mine did that to me once on a pitch black road and it's a but unsettling.

Re: Dimmer switch problem

Thanks. Is this something I can get at a local autoparts store or do I need to get it from Classic or Matt's? Anyone know a part number I would need?

Auto parts store. GM used the same switch in about a billion or so cars.
