Question about 1994 Mercury Topaz

1 Answer

Headlights went out.

I have an 94 mercury topaz. The headlights went out and the headlight switch tests good. If you hold the dimmer switch in they will work.My question is. Is it the dimmer switch causing the problem or is there another problem that maybe causing this?

I went into town, turned off truck, headlights were working. Came out of store and no headlights. All the other lights, running lights, brake lights, signal lights work, but not headlights.


I guess you are saying that after you turned the ignition off, the headlights and all lights went off, but when you returned and turned ignition on all lights but the headlights came on. "a gremlin" stole my light switch? Possible, but most likely your headlight switch is bad, or the headlight relay, or if the dimmer switch makes no difference, It could be power supply or connection to the headlight dimmer relay is bad. Corrosion causes funny behavior. Clean bright metal connections make a world of difference. Follow headlight wiring back to a small box usually on the inside fender of the Engine bay. Check all connections including the ground to the frame (body metal).

I think you're looking for a "headlight switch bezel", Rachel. You pronounce it like "bee-zul".

The headlight switch contains a circuit breaker for the headlights. You would need to know if you have power in and out of the headlight switch for the headlight circuit. You may need a new switch.

Headlight switch turns on parking lights but not headlights. Have to hold high beam switch on to have headlights at night.


Replace light switch assembly. Remenber some switches pull up to flash headlights and press down to change from low to high--press down again goes from high to low.

You would need to use a meter or test light to find out if you have power going thru the headlight switch and thru the dimmer switch.

With electrical problems I always look for a bad ground wire, especially on older vehicles. Look for any wire that goes to an inner fender or the engine, there maybe a faulty relay in the circuit too. good luck, Chuck
