2003 Ford Escape -- no low beams

My son was driving my Ford Escape last night. When he got in the car at a store he had stopped at....no low beams. He called me and asked if he was clear on how the light switches worked. It turns out all he had was high beams. fog lights also working.
I told him to drive home with the high beams.
Anyone know what I should do?

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.

I have a problem with the low beams on my headlights. The high beams works just fine. All of the other lights(turn signal, emergency lights, etc.) work except for the low beams.


Check the fuses first. then replace the turn signal switch if all fuses are good. All the lights run threw it, except the high brake light on the rear.

HEADLIGHTS WONT TURN OFF WITH SWITCH ON A 2002 FORD ESCAPE


Do they stay on with high and low beam? If high or low beam make a difference then you likely need a multi-function switch. If they stay on regardless of high or low beam your Daytime Running Light Module (DRL) may be faulty. It should be located on the rad support, ahead of the radiator. Once you located it, unplug it and see if your lights go out. If they do, replace the DRL. If they do not you likely need a headlight switch.

I have a 2003 kia spectra. Can the headlights be adjusted. On low and high beams they seem to be set to low. I feel they should shine out futher to be able to see more while driving at night


the headlights can be adjusted but you can't adjust the high & low beam separately, you can only adjust the light as a unit unless you have a separate high & low beam lights ( twin lights) ......hope this helps......cheers.

I did not drive my 2003 Escape for two months. It worked fine this morning. Then driving home to night it was almost stalling at the stop signs. Driving along the Highway it had no power at was very jerky...


Get the code, any time you get a MIL Lamp on dash

Jerky--could be EGR Valve

Need the vehicle to diagnose issues,can not guess

Ignition coils a big ford problem, for over 14 years running.
They like to sell them that way

LOW BEAM LIGHTS ON 2009 FORD ESCAPE VERY POOR.


If the headlights are adjusted properly and it is still too dim to see properly, you can add a set of driving lights. A high quality set from PIAA or other high end lighting manufacturers will cost $200-$300, but it is well worth the investment. You can also swap the headlamp bulbs for a more powerful set, ask the parts store.

If your lights are shining at the ground right in front of the vehicle, I would suspect that they are out of adjustment and you should take the vehicle to a shop that can accurately align them.

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.
