2003 Ford mustang High beam switch

Last night I was driving and had been using high and low beams, all of a suddon the high beam shut the lights off, not at the in/out dash but on the directional column.
Then the dome light wouldn't shut off.
Is this a big deal to fix, is it in the directional column, or could it be the lights themselves?
Please help,
Thank you,

The dome lights are not related, but the high beam problem is the steering column mounted multifunction switch, very common problem, they should recall them.

Head light problems sometimes they will not shut off sometimes they (low beams) come on by themself high beam will not shut off


Are you sure there not running in daytime running light, when you think high beams are on

Also, there is sensor on the dash, usally on the speaker grate, that senses night and day. In the daytime your headlights will automatically come on when your car is in drive, and be on the high beam bulb, but dimmer than regular. At night, or in low light conditions, your lights will automatically switch from daytime lights to regular low beams. And yes, even when your switch on the dashis turned off, your lights work automatically.

To turn of the auto setting, just push the override button for your dome light, in and out 3 times, you should hear a chime, and your lights should shut off. This setting resets everytime you shut your vehicle off. Or to turn the auto setting back on, push the over ride button 3 more times.

No low beams.


To start ensure that it is not just a blown fuse. If that is not the problem, then you need to read voltages at the back of fuse box, to check if there is volts on wiring from fuse out to light when switch is on. If there is no power you localize the problem on wiring from light switch to fuse box. In this case you may need to take apart the steering column to repair wiring harness (switch has already been replaced).
If instead there is power getting to light fuse, and power out from fuse box to light, then test and repair the wiring to lights from fuse box, if you do not find the problem you may need a rebuild. This can be done by a mechanic or by a car electrician.

2003 Ford Escape -- no low beams


First solution would be to check the fuses. Commonly, the low and high beams are on separate circuits. Dont forget the interior and under hood fuse boxes. Use your owners manual and the fuse cover to find the right one. In some cases, there is a separate fuse for each light, but I don't think this is the case here. Sounds like a fuse. If it is, replace it and if it goes again, take it to your Ford dealer, or a local mechanic.

Headlights, high beams


No as a rule they don't fail at the same time, in fact it is unusual for the hi beam to fail ever, the problem is most likely in the turn signal/multifunction switch, this does cause your problem, have seen it many times.
