First question, have you actually tested the bulbs out of the car? If not, its worth just testing them in another car or with test wires onto the battery...
Check also the four headlamp fuses. There should be one for each headlamp for each beam setting.
If you know they are good, your suspect is probably the stalk controlling the lights, or the headlamp relay. The stalks are a bit prone on these.

Why does the high beam indicator stay on when normal headlights are turned on , the headlights and indicators will not work ?


sounds as though it may be a column stalk issue if all these functions are on a column stalk it may have become faulty.
It the light switch for main/dip beam is discrete may be a BCM or other electrical fault.
The first is the most likely but, as column stalks may cost a lot of cash, have a competent auto electrician take a look first

Where on your dash board is the switchfor rear door window wiper and washer


Hi
This depends on the vehicle model, however often as not you can find the switch on the same stalk as the front wipers, turning the end of the stalk in the opposite direction to the front wipers, or gently pushing down or pulling up on the stalk (similar action to turning on/off high beam on the headlight stalk) or perhaps gently push forward or pull back (similar action to activating the turn signals) If this does not help locate the switch, please add your vehicle type in the comment box of your original question post.
Trust this helps regards Alan

I'v lost all side lights (including dashboard),but still have headlights/fog/Brake/ ect... checked the fuses all OK, Is there a relay aswl a the fuse? If so, is it in the fusebox, of inline somewhere?...


fuse boxes tent to go faulty on escorts. try manually providing a 12v feed to the dip beam fuse in the fuse box. if the fuse box is faulty then it shuold light up the headlights. columb stalks are also very common on the ford also.

Lights go off when i turn on the high beam


Pull your lever back if the high beams work that way you need a new high/low beam switch, if they do not you need to replace headlight bulbs.
