Its all done from under the hood. You may have to remove the battery and a few other things but you will see how they are mounted when you look down. Usually turn by hand if its the plastic nuts used, but may need a wrench. There is also a polish out now that brightens headlight covers. It works great and saves money

SOURCE: 1998 ford escort wagon brake lights out. bulbs and fuses changed.

have you tested the brake light switch? it is located at the top of the arm the brake pedal is attached to, it is very common for the wires to that switch to break inside the plastic insulation, the switch testing goes like this, there should be 12 volts present at both sides of the switch with the brake pedal depressed and one side without the pedal depressed.

How to fix low beam headlights won't come on---hi beams work ok?


Kenneth, you need to give more details on what kind of vehicle, year, make, style and so forth so we can attempt to make a judgment on this.

Well did you try the solution?


Your headlights are an essential safety system for nighttime driving & visibility. If your headlights are not working, or are not aimed properly, you might not be able to see the road clearly.

Here are some suggestions on how to troubleshoot various kinds of headlight problems:

Problem: One headlight does not work

This usually means one of the headlight bulbs has burned out. Bulbs have a limited life that depends on the number of hours of use, and how much vibration they have been subjected to over time. The thin tungsten filament inside an incandescent headlight bulb will eventually burn out. The more nighttime driving you do, the sooner one or both headlights will fail. A typical automotive incandescent headlamp (halogen or regular) has a service life that may range from 600 to as much as 2000 hours of use. For the average motorist who drives 12,000 to 15,000 miles a year, that means replacing a headlight maybe every five or six years depending on how often the headlights are used. Driving on rough roads may cut that life short by causing the delicate filament inside the bulb to fail prematurely.

The Fix: Replace the burned out bulb.

But before you do that, inspect the electrical connector on the back of the headlight carefully for damage, and see that it is not corroded or loose.

The headlight bulbs on most vehicles today are changed from the back of the headlight housing. The housing is a sealed plastic shell with the bulb and socket mounted on the back. The socket that holds the bulb usually twist-locks into the housing. Rotating it counterclockwise about ¼ turn will unlock the tabs and allow you to pull the bulb and socket out of the housing. Access on some vehicles is easy, but on others you may have to remove other components that are in the way, or even remove the housing mounting bolts and remove the housing before you can change the bulb. See your owners manual or the vehicle service literature for detailed instructions on how to replace a headlight bulb.

Once the socket has been removed from the headlight housing, you can pull the old bulb out of the socket and replace it with a new one (must be the same size and style as the original bulb).

Aftermarket replacement bulbs with slightly higher wattage ratings and/or tinting are available to upgrade headlight performance and improve nighttime and bad weather visibility.
best regards,

daid

I ask you did you try the solution posted twice then?

How to change headlights on 2004 ram1500


If you are replacing the headlight bulbs, rotate the bulb retaining lock ring counter-clockwise, pull retainer out of headlight housing and disconnect electrical connector. On the drivers side, you have to remove the fuse and relay box screws and move the box to the side to access the headlight bulb. If you are replacing the headlight housings, there is a push pin and 2 screws on the inside, behind the hood and one screw on the outside at the bottom. Remove these and pull the housing out enough to remove the bulb retainers.

Headlight switch replacement


Here is the recall info.

The vehicles affected by this recall are certain ‘92 & ‘93 model year Ford Thunderbirds and Mercury Cougars. The problem; the headlights turn off, then come back on after driving with the fog lights on. Ford is replacing the headlight switch and if necessary the electrical connector for the headlight switch. Repairs for a safety recall are to be performed at no cost to the vehicle owner, even if you are not the original owner. In addition, if the headlight switch was replaced before the recall, the owner is entitled to a refund for repairs. But the owner should still bring their vehicle in for inspection. Why? The replacement part may not have been of the new design.
