Question about 1998 Ford Ranger SuperCab

93 Ford Ranger Headlights stuck on

When I turn the engine off, the highbeam indicator lights up on the dash, and the headlights remain on. I've had a problem with the battery draining if left for several days in the past, which I haven't been able to solve. And now this. I'm sure the behaviour of the headlights staying on is new -- I would have noticed. I think I had this problem with a host of other electrical problems in the past and I believe there was some kind of headlight module which was replaced. Anyone know where it is and whether I can just buy it and try replacing it? Last time I took it in for electrical work it was over $400 and it didn't solve the battery draining problem... Thanks...

SOURCE: highbeam headlights work but no low beam, it is not the switch........?

Check voltage at the circuit box and test the high/low dimmer switch. Corrosion on a ground wire could also be the problem.

Was driving 2002 ford ranger when engine died,lights work,no clicking from starter,could it be the clutch sensor?


The clutch sensor would not cause the dying problem. If you have dash lights that is not an indication that the battery is ok sine they require almost no voltage to turn on. Try your headlights with the key on and see if the dash light dim. This would indicate a battery/charging system problem. Also note if the battery light comes on when the key is turned on. If the other lights work but the battery light does not it indicates the alternator has a problem. If all the lights work fine check for power at the clutch switch which contacts the cluths pedal arm higher up the pedal. Should have power to and thru the switch when cranking.

Headlights won't turn off


The weird noise is the relay for the headlights. You need to locate the relays and replace them. They are in the fusebox that is under the hood.

The speedometer lights will not turn on when i put the headlights on. the turning indicaters come on solid as well as the highbeam indicater without the highbeams on.


if the rest of your dash and instrument lights work and it's just the speedo that stays dark you have a bulb burnt out in your dash cluster.

Headlights and highbeams switches


After reading your post, I am pretty sure the headlight switch is at fault. What happens when you turn the headlight switch to on and then actuate the high beam switch? If both low and high elements light up, I think that would be the headlight switch itself as the culprit. I don't have access to the wiring diagram you need, as that would answer your question end the guesswork on my part.
