Headlight on 2001 Windstar won't turn on has no power

If it is only one headlight it is probably a bad bulb, corrosion on the connectors, or frayed wiring.

If both bulb check both your inside and under hood fuse panel. If it is a fuse and it blows again after replacing, there is a short somewhere in the wiring harness.

Where is the headlight fuse on 1990 astro van,is ther 1 under the hood

When facing vehicle with hood open, should be on right, or drivers side under the hood, in a black or gray plastic housing with a cover that can be popped off. You will need a fuse puller or pair of needle nose pliers to pull and check the fuses. Yours is probably a blue 15 amp fuse that's blown.

I have a 2001 windstar the driver side headlight isnt working is there a fuse for this if so is it under hood or dash and what number

If it is only one headlight that is out then I would check that lightbulb first. Usually the headlights have one fuse for the both of them. So I would say your headlight is needs to be replaced. However, feel free to click on this link which will take you to the owners manual and start looking at page 187 for the fuse locations and what they control.

How to change the globe to the headlight of my Kia Pregio GS 2005 van

To replace headlight bulb of kia pregio van: You only need Phillips screw driver and 10mm socket or open wrench. Open the hood, remove front grill with 4 phillips screw. This will give you room for your hand to pull out the headlight housing later on. Next is remove the signal light housing by unscrewing the phillips screw on top of the headlight housing then pull out the signal light housing and remove the bulb. You will see 2 pcs 10mm bolts on the side which hold the headlight. Loosened and remove the bolts on headlight holder then pull the headlight sideward. Remove power supply socket before removing it completely from the van. Remove bulb socket, spring clip, and busted bulb and replace with new one. Reassemble the disassembled parts in reverse order. That's it, will take you only 10 minutes.

Hi my horn does not work in my 2000 ford windstar but i dont know where i should look to replace it can you please help me is it in the van or under the hood and in what position thank you very much

First check the fuse. On your 2000 it is Fuse #4 on the fusebox in the engine compartment. The horn is located inside the fender behind the left headlight. You get at it by removing 5 phillips screws. The bottom part of the plastic fender liner, and reaching in. A 1/2 socket takes off the bracket, and the wire is connected by a spade lug. It may have come loose.

Replace head light bulb

I have a 2001 Windstar and can help you with your question. The headlight lamp is easy to replace. Open the hood and reach behind the headlight assembly. Carefully grasp the lamp and turn it counter clockwise. Once the lamp is out, remove the wire pigtail. Replace the lamp and reinstall. A real easy fix.

E 350 headlights won't come on

If you've narrowed it down that far, it sounds like either a headlight relay (not all vehicles have them, but some do) or the switch itself. It would be worth getting a Haynes manual at this point (they're about $19 at a parts store) - that'll show you locations of any relays as well as wiring diagrams and how to disassemble a lot of the vehicle, in the event you have to replace the switch itself.
