Question about 2008 Ford F 250 Super Duty 4WD

3 Answers

2008 Ford F-250 Low beams do not work. High beams are fine.

I installed a plow on my new truck and wired in a relay backwards. The headlights worked at first but now I only have high beams. I corrected the relay wiring goof and still have only high beams. I checked both low beam fuses and they are fine. Is there a fusible link or something else ie. circuit breaker etc. that could be causing the low beams not to work. I know the bulbs are fine.

    The right high beam has stopped working. how do I correct this problem? I realise it has to be a grounding problem because when I run a wire from the base of the bulb housing to the body of the car it works. What do you suggest?

Just remove all the connections as it could be malfunction in the switches and the wirings needs to be rechecked to make it proper.other option could be bad dimmer switch. You will need to replace the turn signal/ dimmer switch as an assembly.to replace you will need to disable the air bag, drop the column, pull the wheel

2008 ford ranger headlight relay bad? Lamps do not light up, checked BULBS..OK no left highbeam Left and right lamp fuses ok and hi/lo 30a fuse ok


Did you check the fuse circuit for voltage, use a testlite or something.
I posted part of headlamp wiring. You understand your dimmer switch is involved in the circuits.

Can someone tell me where the headlight relay is located on a 1999 Ford Expedition


Low beams would be through the dimmer switch on the column. If your relay was bad you would have neither low or high beams.

Low beam headlight drivers side don`t work. high beam it works.


Check tour bulbs first and replace if blown. If OK then check wiring backwards from light to dip switch.

My low beams don't not work, only high beam. All other lights works fine. Problem started without any known issue. They were working just fine two nights ago. Where should I start? Is there a fuse or relay...


on a lot of vehicles theres a fuse for low and high beam headlights. could be a relay also. check the fuses in the fuse box. if both headlights have been changed and the fuses or relay are ok, then the problem is either in wiring or a bad dimmer switch. have a good day !!

Passenger side headlight won't work


This sounds like a wiring problem. I know it has been documented that the '01 eclipse headlight connectors have had issues with arcing and this problem sounds like the wiring may just be shorting instead of arcing. I would recommend starting at the bulb socket and working backwards along the wiring, looking for shorts along the way. It would also be important to note if your low beams do not work at all, versus working occasionally or even sometimes flickering while driving.
