Headlight problems in 88 Bronco II

My headlights won't turn on. I get the parking lights. The bulbs aren't bad. I replaced the headlight switch and the connector. My next guess is to head to the multifunction switch. Any ideas on what the problem would be and how to solve?

Be sure to check and see if your wiring to frame ground is good. I am not sure that you "blew" all of this at once. There should be a ground that runs from the light harness to somewhere on the core support. Just be prepared to chase wires. Electrical gremlins are always fun.

SOURCE: remove dashboard on a 88 ford bronco 2

You don't need to remove the dash. Look under the dash where the switch is located. on the side of the switch you will see a small button to push in. While pushing in on the button pull the knob as though you were going to turn the lights on. At this time the stem should release from the switch. Undo the bezel and drop the switch down so you can see to unplug the wires. Replace wires to new switch and reverse the procedure to install. You don't need to push the button in when replacing the stem.

The headlamp switch will cause the lamps to turn off. The switch heats up and turns the headlamps off. It will cool down and work for about 10 minutes and cut out,

I have 89 bronco 2 my brake lights turn signals both work my tail lights don't work have check fuse n blubs what might be the problem


The turn signals and brake lights use the same circuit and filament in the bulbs. The tail lights are on the other circuit which comes from the headlight switch.
Do you have power on the tail light fuse ?

Headlight switch Wire connector for 88' Bronco II


The little wire ends and the plastig plug are available at auto elecy shop just cut and shut resolder new terminal and fit to plug. To stop this problem re occouring i would suggest fitting a relay to the head lights both high and low beam and a relay for any spots seperatly but connected to high beam only. excessive amps has been running thru the switch causing meltdown. Relays will reduce the load to the wires

1997 Ford E350 clearance lights don't work


First check the fuse, the clearance lights are not factory in most cases and the wiring gets shorted from poor wiring. Once you replace the fuse see if the lights come on, if the fuse blows right away find the wiring to the clearance lights and disconnect them, if the short goes away it is a I said the wiring is shorted. If you don't have the owner's manual you should be able to download it at the link provided. It should be fuse #10 a 20 AMP in the interior fuse box. http://www.fordservicecontent.com/Ford_Content/catalog/owner_guides/97ecoog1e.pdf

Daytime Running Lights Inoperative 2002 Toyota Camry


[Information] For a 2002 Toyota Camry, the Daytime Running Lights (DRL) operate utilizing the High Beams (inner Lamps closer to the center of the vehicle front) at a reduced power.

[The troubleshooting process:] Review the Owner's Manual and ensure the test configuration matches the following criteria:
1. According to the 2002 Toyota Camry Owner's Manual (Check your Owners Manual):
"The DRL system will make your headlights come on at a reduced brightness when:
The light switch s in the "DRL" position.
The ignition is on with the engine running.
The headlight switch is off.
The parking brake is released."


2. Set the Test Conditions according to Step 1 above.

3. Check the headlight bulbs to ensure they are not burned out. If one burns out, there is a fair chance that the other would have burned out at the same time. Replace as necessary. In this case, if the high beams operate, the DRLs should also operate.
4. Test the system, ensuring the step 1 conditions are set. (Engine running, Multi-function Switch on Turn Signals in "DRL" position, headlight switch off (repeating what the manual says -- it should be obvious that in the "DRL" position, the headlight switch should be off / do not have the switch positioned to "High Beam"), and the Parking Brake "off").
5. If DRL lights do not work, check the engine compartment Fuse and Relay Box. there is a 5 Amp DRL fuse -- replace it with the spare. Test (step 4).
6. If it does not work, swap around or replace relays -- there are three (3). Any one of them could be bad (stuck or burned out). Test (step 4).
7. Other less likely possible issues could be that the Multi-function Switch is broken or a connection / wire is broken. [Beyond the scope of this process.]


My problem was that the test configuration did not have the engine running and parking brake off - Step 1. Problem solved with much thought, repetitive tests on the vehicle and going back to the basics -- what does the Owner's Manual say and where are the applicable fuses and relays located?

My head lights won't work. My running lights and dome light work and so does my turning singals.


Probably need to replace your headlight switch, it could be another problem but that is where I would start. The headlight switch is 2 or 3 switches in one, it turns on your parking lights, it turns on your interior lights and dims them too. Either that or it's your bulbs but they say you will never burn both headlights out at the same time. If you have a test light or a volt meter you could check the voltage at the headlight, that would eliminate the switch.

Where is brake fluid level indicator on 1988 Bronco II?


The indicator light is in the dash in between the gauges where the other indicator lights are you probally have a bad bulb. you would need to take the dash panel off to acsess this. it has 4 screws on the top of the gauges underneath the piece of the dash that goes across the front. there are 4 screws on the bottom to acsess these screws you have to take off the strip that goes just above the metal part on the bottom of the dash. this strip has the turn signal switch in it , also has the cig lighte, ash tray and goes all the way across to the end of the dash. it just pulls off, the other side where the headlight switch is pull out headlight switch and you will be able to get to screw by turning it when you pop it loose, gently pull on the top of the panel to get it loose, after you get it off you will see the bulbs..
