Fuse boxes tent to go faulty on escorts. try manually providing a 12v feed to the dip beam fuse in the fuse box. if the fuse box is faulty then it shuold light up the headlights. columb stalks are also very common on the ford also.

My 323 has no dash or side lights working but brake and headlights work ?


Mr, Parker check first the fuse box for any blown fuse and also any relay. Fuse box is on the driver's side legroom and also for relays under bonnet engine compartment. Another possibility for side lights might the bulbs blown and and dashboard as well. For better resolve ask the help of an expert-car electrician.

98 pathfinder no tail lights or parking lights or turning signals, but head light and brake lights work


I would hazard (!) a guess that the relay in the engine bay is toast, the headlights are on a different circuit and a different relay. Check the fuse box if you already haven't, if all the fuses look good then verify that the wiring from the fuse panel to the tail lights is getting power. There is also another relay at the back on the driver's side for the tail lights if I remember correctly but as you have brake lights I suspect that there is more than one problem here.

High beam indicator comes on with fog lights


Could your Mazda have daytime running lights? If you checked all fuses, did that include the three in the joint box?

There is an auto light-off control module that is central to all functions you describe. It is assumed that you would only turn on the fog lights with headlights on and set for high beam. If you set the headlight switch to LOW, the module closes the headlight relay to turn on the low beams. If you then turn the headlight switch to HIGH, the module turns on the high beams and allows you to turn on the FOG LIGHT switch, closing the fog light relay and turning on the fog lights. Since this sequence is not working, I suggest checking both high beam lamps as both could be burned out. Other possibilities are a defective headlight switch or the module

TrialBlazer 2006: My main headlight including fog lights not working (even on manual mode or auto mode) notes: - Hi headlights is OK - Lamps ,Fuses and related Relay is OK - No any power raching the...


{: ) It seems you have done your homework well. I presume you are referring about the main power source of the relay coming from the battery. And that you dont have any trouble with the relay receiving the control signal commanded by your headlamp switch.
You can try these: Turn ignition off. On your underhood fuseblock, there is a 15amp fuse labeled HDM. Pull this out and make sure its not blown. If it is, replace with same amp rating and check again operation. Otherwise proceed with the next step.

Using your test lamp, probe on the exposed conductor on the fuse for voltage. The test lamp should light up whenever you probe on either side of the fuse, otherwise your fuseblock is in question. We can rule out the main wiring issue if the fuseblock is supplying power to all other circuits on your vehicle. Ihope you get lucky.

Ford expedition yr'00 headlight not working checked fuses..


The low beam headlamps have a seperate fuse for each lamp in the central or underdash fuse panel.
The right headlamp is fuse fuse 26 (10amp) and the left is fuse 28 (10 amp). These fuse are hot only when headlamps are on so you need to test them with a test light with headlamps on. If they do not have power to them then concern is either headlamp switch or daytime running lamp relay if your vehicle is equipped with this feature, or a bad multifunction switch.
Power leaves the headlamp switch on the RD/YE wire and goes to multifunction switch. It leaves multifunction switch on the other RD/YE wire The wire will then go thru either a connector c2003 located behind the passenger side air bag behind the dash or to the DRL relay if your vehicle has this feature and leaves there on RD/BK wire to the headlights .
