Question about 1998 Ford Taurus
Thanks because I thought it was headlight switch and bought one and that was not the problem. So my situation is this I was driving one night hit a pot hole and both lights went out and before that I had my friends kids playing and turing all the gagdets which could of blown the fuse. N ow when I turn my headlight or high beams on they dont come on. So i turn them off and the dome and parking lights stay on so I have to unplug battery to make them come off could this be the fuse or electrical
It's an electrical short you have a connector that is bad and probably shorted . chances are when you hit that pot hole you knocked a connector loose are a wire came off. if you replace the fuse and it still doesn't work that tells you that there is a loose wire or bad bulbs or a bad socket so you have to check each of these to find the problem and seeing is your dome light stays on that tells me that your circuit to the dimmer switch is shorting to your head light circuit so check the connetor to the dimmer switch. i hope this helps please rate this...thanks
