Question about 2000 Mercury Cougar
Headlight and instrument lights don't work everything else is fine. All the fuses in the box look fine. OH the fog lights still work to. wher should I look ???
I have had the same problems recently and I checked the relays, headlight switch, and changed all 7.5 fuses but nothing has worked. The fog lights work but nothing else does. Can someone tell me the problem???

Take a 12 volt test light and test out your headlight switch because that could be bad

balkjr Check the 7.5 amp fuse thats under the dash labeled high beams and low beams. I like a idiot checked all the other fuses under the hood but neglected to check that one and it was blown. Once i replaced the fuse my headlights work fine but still no instrument lights. For whatever reason i was able to blow the fuse again by shorting out the dimmer switch so i checked it with a multimeter and it had voltage going in but none out. I unplugged the dimmer switch and looked into it and alias noticed a solder in the middle pin that had snapped off. Its proved trickier than i had expected to solder it back but i know for sure that it is the culprit because i was able to use a pin to reach in it and hold the solder point down to get connection and my instrument lights worked fine. You can look right into the switch and see the solder point thats broke if that seems to be the problem for you also it comes from the middle pin on the switch and solders straight to the board. Just look inside the switch is made fairly open.
