I think the multi-function switch is bad on my 2005 Ford Taurus SE.The windshield wipers are functioning continuously.The fuse box is located under my hood. Which fuse can I pull to "kill" the wipers?


open the bonnet open the black fuse and relay plastic box. Listen for the relay kicking in or you may be able to feel the relay or look on the cover for the relay location. Pull out the relay .
I have a faulty headlight switch myself and had to hard wire my head lights on with a jump wire. The relay is in my pocket until I can get a new headlight indicator stalk. You may be able to jump wire the wipers with spade connectors to work with a jump wire in case you need wipers until you can replace the wiper stalk .
It could be a stuck relay causing the fault rather than the switch. you need to check if switch causes voltage to turn off accross the relay coil in the relay mount block.

NO HEADLIGHTS OR HIGHBEAMS 'Nissan Pathfinder 1998'


You have two fuses powering the headlight switch, and the switch itself.
If both fuses have power, the switch would be suspect.

Headlights or brights will not turn on. Running lights turn on. Fuse and relay are both fine.


I looked in the Honda technical manual wiring diagrams and I don't think there is a separate relay for the low beam headlights. The headlight switch itself is located right above the steering column where the headlight stalk is attached - controls parking lights, high beams and low beams. It could be that a relay is integrated within this switch,

The low beam lights do not work I have tried a new bulb and replacing the fuses. the high beam lights do work


You may have to check a few items here. Do the high beam lights only work when you "flash" from the combination stalk or do they work when you have headlight switch turned on and then select high beam from stalk..? You may also want to check out the headlight relay. If this is OK, you might have a headlight switch issue or the combination stalk may be faulty.

High beams don't work


......No other History, symptoms, clues, things already checked?
Would check the fuses and relay box
Would check the manual (haynes or ?), if separate relay(has contact points that can fail by repeated arc damage like a switch) for high beams, if so could potentially test by switching high relay with low or a test patch wire from battery to the high beam terminal of the relay.
...if not fuses or relays, then potentially the column light/dimmer stalk which is a much bigger pain...
...could also spray some electrical contact cleaner into the column dimmer/light stalk switch and see if any result.
...So, start with the headlights and work back toward the switch---verifying that can get each stage to cause the lights to function by bypassing direct to battery current source.
...hope may have helped

'91 Nissan low beam


What you have sounds like a Headlight SWITCH Problem, You can check the Fuse for them (DOUBTFULL) but its a Large one @ Power distribution Box Under Hood.

Headlights 1991 nissan pathfinder

Your year Pathfinder, as mine, had a slew of bad head light switches. The headlight switches caused a slurry of intermediate nightmares for a lot of customers. Many complaints included:
1. My head lights sometimes turn off upon switching from low to high beams.
2. My lights turn completely off when I switch to high beams.
3. My lights flicker when I switch from high to low beams and vise verse.
4. My lights sometime wont turn on at all.
5. My lights go on and off on bumpy roads.
6. My lights sometimes come on by themselves.
All of these different but similar complaints contribute to the infamous head light switch. There has even been reports of continuous dead battery's due to the head light switch turning the lights on and off intermittently and eventually deadening the battery.
The light switch is relatively easy to replace. Simply remove the the two upper and lower steering column covers, disconnect the two wiring harness bulk head connectors, a couple screws and wallah.
Remember your safety and always dissconncet your your battey upon electrical repairs.
Just last week I bought a new head light switch for about $70.00. I would highly recommend buying a new head headlight switch and not buying a junkyard special. You will likely be buying another faulty switch.
Good luck!!!!
