Question about 2005 Ford Escape
WHEN USING RIGHT TURN SIGNAL WHEN LOW BEAMS ARE ON HIGH BEAMS COMES ON AND STAYS ON
Hello, is sounds like your issues are coming from within your turn signal/high-low beam switch. Most of the time the wires get worn or break and start rubbing around on each other causing troubles within the electrical circuit. Other times the contact switches inside the turn signal/high beam switch/lever wear and loose contact over time. You may be able to see wires leading from switch into steering colum. Check for bad wires, if none you may have to replace switch which you can get from any junkyard for bout 5 bucks plus learn how to take it apart in a junk car no one is worried about getting destroyed. BE CAREFULL WITH AIRBAGS when you pull your steering wheel to fix switch. It is not a difficult job to do.

It sounds like you are confused about how your headlamp system is supposed to work. The DRL does not run on the High beam circuit, it runs on the low beam circuit. The fog lamps are supposed operate with the park lamps and also with the low beams, not the high beams. From your description, I would say that your system is operating as designed and you are having trouble telling High from Low. (Don't feel bad, that is why high beam indicators were invented in the first place.)

SOURCE: Headlights, high beams
No as a rule they don't fail at the same time, in fact it is unusual for the hi beam to fail ever, the problem is most likely in the turn signal/multifunction switch, this does cause your problem, have seen it many times.

SOURCE: high beams wont turn on.
First place to start is with headlight switch. I did have a case many years ago when both high beams were blown out at once, but this is rare. When you have the headlight switch out, jump power from te low beams to the high beam contacts. If high beams come on, replace switch.

if it is not the bulb, try testing the connector where the bulb hooks into. my driver side is out but like urs the high beams work but not the lows.
