    After about 5 minutes of driving the headlights will flash on and off, mine do not come back on and stay on though. I have to turn them off, wait about 30 seconds and then turn them back on and they are good for another 2-3 minutes

Headlight switch turns on parking lights but not headlights. Have to hold high beam switch on to have headlights at night.

Replace light switch assembly. Remenber some switches pull up to flash headlights and press down to change from low to high--press down again goes from high to low.

1993 ford thunderbird head lights went out

I hate to tell you this, based on the amount of work and the expense, but I feel the problem is with the headlight switch/dimmer switch. For all the lights to burn out at the same time would be depressing, at best. Good luck, and I hope you can find a good used one, and a good friend to help you repair this.

1993 tbird instrument fuse. which fuse is it.

It will be a low amp fuse,if the dimmer for the dash will not work,then if the fuse is dead on both side,then the head light switch is the problem,it controls the out put voltage to the fuse.It is common for them to do this.Find a fuse that is hot,only with the key on,and run it to the dead fuse for the instrument panel.The dash lights will work when ever the key is on,even with the lights off.But will not affect anything,or replace the headlight switch.

Headlights cutting out on my ford thunderbird

Your alternator may be on its way out. The alternator keeps the battery charged while driving and if the battery looses charge extra lights on the vehicle are usually the first to go.
A rarer possibility is that there is a wire that is rotted. I would get your alternator tested first.

Headlight switch replacement

Here is the recall info.

The vehicles affected by this recall are certain ‘92 & ‘93 model year Ford Thunderbirds and Mercury Cougars. The problem; the headlights turn off, then come back on after driving with the fog lights on. Ford is replacing the headlight switch and if necessary the electrical connector for the headlight switch. Repairs for a safety recall are to be performed at no cost to the vehicle owner, even if you are not the original owner. In addition, if the headlight switch was replaced before the recall, the owner is entitled to a refund for repairs. But the owner should still bring their vehicle in for inspection. Why? The replacement part may not have been of the new design.
