Question about Ford Crown Victoria

1 Answer

I have a 1988 Crown Victoria, when turning on the head lights and in the low beam, the right low beam is ok but the other three light dimly. When I put it on high beam the two on the left light up normaly but the two on the left are dim like they are shorted. Does this sound like a ground is disconected? Jim

I have a 2005 chevy Impala SS and my high and low beams go on at the same time and three of them are dim.


Hello! The "Flash to pass" switch in the Headlight dimmer switch is the most probable cause...When it is activated it turns off the low beams...The dimness can be attributed to a resistive ground in that circuit...but one thing at a time...The turn signal multifunction switch contains the flash to pass switch...Therefore you would replace the multifunction switch...See picture below...Guru...saailer

Headlights wont dim but work when clicked on bright


Replace both low beam headlights. It's common to have one headlight burned out and you may not realize it for months. Then the other one goes out and "puff" you have NO low beams.

I have a 1999 Crown Victoria. When I turned the heater on, the fuse blew for the low beams and signal lights. Heater works fine and amperage is ok. Replaced fuse, still no lights. Solutions?


It was recommended that I replace the multi-function switch. This I did not follow.

In the end it was the AC relay switch that was defective and needed to be replaced.

High beams don't work


Hi,

Most of the time when the high or low beams don't work you have a bad dimmer switch. I would reccomend getting it replaced.

No high beam headlights 1996 crown victoria


does the flash to pass function work? That uses high beam bulbs.

If yes, I would bet $100 it's the lighting control module. Very expensive. @ $500. Can buy for $250 @ tascafordparts.com.

Sometimes on Ebay for cheap price.

--------------------------------
Lighting Control Module Principles of Operation
NOTE: Due to varying wattage ratings and resulting current draw, certain aftermarket headlamp bulbs may cause the lighting control module (LCM) to shut down the short circuit protection, resulting in the low beams becoming inoperative. Verify that the headlamp bulbs meet Ford specifications.
The lighting control module (LCM) receives inputs from the following:
  • headlamp switch
  • multifunction switch
  • photocell and amplifier
Depending on the inputs received, the LCM will command the headlamps on or off.

Power is supplied to the headlamps through lighting control module Circuit 502 (GY) and circuit protection C in the fuse junction panel. Ground is provided to the headlamp bulb and retainer (13N021) through Circuit 57 (BK).

The lighting control module is located under the instrument panel, to the right of the steering column, under the lower steering column cover.

Removal and Installation
  1. Open hood. Disconnect battery ground cable (14301).
  1. Disengage three pushpins and remove lower driver side intrument panel (04320) finish panel.
  1. Locate lighting control module above accelerator pedal.
  1. Disconnect bottom two eletrical connectors from lighting control module.
  1. Remove two screws retaining LCM to bracket and unclip from bracket.
  1. Remove lighting control module from bracket and disconnect two remaining electrical connectors.
  1. To install, reverse Removal procedure. Check lighting control module for proper operation.
---------------------------------

the module is about 6 inches lng and 4 inches wide and has 3 wire connectors.

Head lights not coming on. Only day time running lights on. this car has two sets of head lights. I see other jaguar drive by with the out side head lights on but my only lights that come on are very dim...


The daytime running lights are usually the high beams, running at about 80% intensity. Your outer lights are the low beams. Check your fuse box and make sure you don't have blown fuses for the low beams. If the fuses are OK, check to be sure the bulbs are OK. If they are, I'd suspect either a dead or stuck headlight relay, or a bad lightswitch. Check the fuses and bulbs and post your results, and we can take it from there.
