Question about 2008 Ford Focus SE Sedan
2003 Focus Wagon ZTW
I have checked the fuses and replaced the headlamp. Here is what happened to begin with...
I was driving at night on the freeway and realized I had missed my exit. There was no traffic and I cut over to take my exit late.
I wasn't able to see a raised island type barrier perhaps 6" maybe 8" tall, which I therefore drove over (slammed over) at probably 50 MPH.
At that time the left headlight went very dim, the left turn indicator on the dash remains on and the left turn signal stopped working unless the headlights are switched off. Turn on the left turn signal and it clicks 3 times as normal, then goes into the fast click mode indicating problems with the light.
Also, if the headlights are on, the windshield wiper will only slowly creep up the window, but not actually work.
Turn off the headlights and both the turn indicator and wipers work as normal.
After replacing the headlamp, the left turn problem indicator is no longer lit, and the left turn signal seems to work with or without the headlights on, but the wiper still does not work, and the headlight remains extremely dimly lit.
I was wondering if this would indicate a wiper relay?
