Burned out bulb

I have a 2006 Ford Freestyle. The bulb that illuminates the headlight control/ panel is burned out. I have been told that Ford does not stock this product. Is that true?

    This particular bulb is not available through Ford or google search. We had our mechanic build a new bulb and the problem was fixed for $6.00. 9 times out of 10 I stay away from the dealership mechanic and go elsewhere.

Most bulbs are replaceable. I would call and speak to someone in the parts department of the dealership as they would know better than anyone by looking in their catalog.

Hello lisa wolf, I'm not sure where you have heard this but i'm more than positive they do. If for some reason they do not i would suggest googling the bulb replacement and you should be able to find it from there.
Please post what you do and how you did it. I look forward to your posts.

/'left front turn signal works but not when headlights are on


1. check your turn signal light bulbs to see if one is burned out or partly burned out. One filament may be broken. Do it with lights on and off. Check brake lights. If one not working that is the problem bulb. Check front and back lights.

2. replace your turn signal flashers in fuse panel

How do you replace a burned out light?


The entire faceplate pops off. Then there are 4 screws retaining the climate control(sometimes there are just 2 staggered) remove the screws and on the backside you'll see the illumination lamp socket. Pull the socket out of it's holder and pull the bulb straight out.

My headlights do not work on brights.


You most likely need new bulbs, or a new fuse. Check the bulbs and see that the filaments aren't burned out. If you have dual beam headlights, there will be one bulb on each side with 2 filaments inside. If you have single beam headlights there will be 2 bulbs on each side. If they look alright, find out which fuse controls your hi-beams and see that it isn't burned out.

I have a 2002 Ford Explorer and both my headlights are burned out. How to I pull the headlights off so I can replace the bulbs? thx.


actually you do not pull off the headlight. Pop the hood and look behind the headlight and the bulb will twist in and out. You may have to remove battery to get to one of them. Also, be very careful not to touch the replacement bulbs, if you do as soon as you turn them on they will burn out again. The oils in your skin cause the bulbs to get too hot and burn out.

Bulb only illuminates when i engage turn signal.


Hi: tail is on its own circuit and utilizes the longer thinner element in tthe bulb --- the brake and turn utilize the short thicker element in the bulb---- two different circuits. If bulb fails on tail ligh then the bulb is more than likely burned out. When you take the bulb out, look at the elements and you should see a broken thin filiment. bulb is bad, replace. good luck

Instrument panel illumination


I would suggest replacing the headlight switch as it also controls the brightness of the dash lights by a variable resistor. If it has shorted, it will blow the fuse. Once the fuse gets replaced, it could have burned out the resistor completely. Chances are, unless something caught fire, or smoked horribly, a wire hasn't been burned out.
