This could be caused by a lot of different things,,but usually it is the fault of the Headlight Relay.
Try replacing the relay before going further.

Problem is most likely the water pump.Have seen several of these doing this on the 5.4L. Impeller fins were damaged on the ones that I have seen.

SOURCE: Blows fuses when parking lights are turned on. Headlights work fine even running lights.

If it only happens when you turn the switchto the parking lights then it is most likely the swich that is the problem. Light swich failure appears to be a common fault with fords

Hi Warren,,
These cars are fitted with a Delphi common rail system that is known for various faults including yours, you need to have a sealed rail test done on the injectors as they are probably leaking off to much causing low pressure in the common rail,when the car is warm,they also suffer with injector code loss ,no reason they get confused this normally gives poor performance and high fuel consumption ,if the injectors are fine check the system for air leaks in the fuel supply pipes and check the leak off pipes for leaks,even the smallest leak can let air in,if the engine light has come on get the codes read ,

SOURCE: My focus tdci 1800 ran fine until recently. I was

This is one of them faults thats very difficult to diagnose but if what you say is right then i would change the drivers door lock ,they are repairable as they are a sealed unit on these cars,but i did have a similar problem with a petrol version on one of the first models of these cars about a 99 or 2000 as i remember and it would play up just like this ,open and close the door lock with key three times and it started.then be ok for a week then not start again so i had the key man down with his programmer and he checked it out for the key remote and found nothing wrong with either the master or the spare key and he said try changing the door lock because he had this problem before with other ford focus models and mondeos .Change the lock and it was ok for a week but the owner sold the car for a new car on the scrappage scheme so i never did find out it was ok after that

Ford ikon low beam globes keep blowing


are they loose?? every how many days approximately you have to replace them??

If you have to replace them very often it's possible that there's a small short circuit in the car. If this is the case i suggest you to disconect the battery of the car and with a tester check if there's continuity between the positive and the negative of one globe and then the other. if so, you need to take your car to an auto electrician to find specifically where the problem is.

I have a 2006 ford escape and the passenger head light low beam will not work. Tried replacing the bulb, and check fuses nothing is working.. what else can I try?


Both your low beam and your high beam is protected by the same fuse, so it makes sense that the fuse is OK if the high beam is working on the passenger side. There are 3 fuses for the headlamps. Fuse #13 in the Battery Junction Box (20 Amp). If this fuse is blown, the headlamp relay will not have any power and neither high nor low beam on either side will work (you will have no headlamps at all) Then there is Fuses #2 and #3 (15 Amp) in the Battery Junction Box. #2 goes to the left low and high beam and #3 goes to the right low and high beam.
The headlamp switch uses a SINGLE CIRCUIT to control BOTH sides at the same time, so if one side works, the switch cannot be the problem. The headlamp relay provides power for fuses #2 and #3 and we already ascertained that these fuses must have power since we have working lights on both sides, so the relay cannot be the problem. A replacement bulb has already been tried, so that pretty much leaves us with a bad lamp socket. (Most likely cause) or a bad connection at splice #S122, which is located in the main wiring harness near the breakout for the left headlamp. (RED/BLACK wire)

Head lamp wont work


Try replacing bulbs they could have both gone at the same time,I think it takes a 9006 bulb. You could check by pluging low beam plug into high beam bulb if it works the low beam bulbs are gone

Do you have high-beams? I would check the fuse first. Worst case you need two new bulbs. They recommend replacing both at the same time anyways.

I have bright lights and no dim lights on my ford explorer


Hello, The first thing I would check is to make sure that your fuses are good, a lot of fors have a specific fuse in the fuse panel for low beams. As well believe it or not I have seen more times than I can count that both head lights need to be changed, I know it seems weird both going at the same time but it happens more than you can imagine.

One of the reasons this happens is because we use low beams much more than high beams. Good Luck and I hope this helps. twitter, SwiftAuto if you have anymore questions.
