I would assume so. I don't know for certain. There has been a few threads where the 94 electrical diagrams were posted for 93 trucks....
If you have one easily accessible compare to the pic. Or if you can get the whole wiring harness off the dash lets see what that would cost to ship.
Thanks.

Have all wiring, cluster, etc for a 1994 4.0 - shoot me a text to remind me around lunch EST and I'll send over photos from the parts bunker.

I know I have a few first Gen headlight switches with pigtails attached as well.

I'm becoming a parts store. 😑

My credo
In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.
If you need it for comparison,I can scan appropriate pages from the ‘93 EVTM when I get home from work tonight.

Seems that I ordered a new switch for mine and the socket/ pigtail was included.

Hmmm. I will have to go check my parts bus. I have a headlight switch out there somewhere. I don't remember seeing a socket/ pigtail in the box but its been years.

In my experience... when the connector melts you probably need a new switch too.

Well, @Uncle Gump
Thanks for the virtual cuff on the head. Got one ordered thru a local parts place for $18.
PS local ford dealer didn't have one but price was well north of $100.

When I got my 93 in 2006 I got online and found a Ford shop manual on Ebay. The Very One they used in their own dealership repair shops. I think about $6? I know less than 10. He/they may have came by them from some warehouse auction/sale or something. Branded Ford. His ad didn't stay up long, Ford may have had something to do with it.

Anywho, I've used it extensively and never seen anything that would distinguish a 93 from a 94

I like cookies.
I had the same issue with my '93. If you replace it you will have the same issue in a matter of months. I installed a relay in the headlight circuit so that so many amps aren't going through the switch. Have had no trouble in the last 12 years or so since I did it and it made my headlights brighter.
