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.

SOURCE: LOW BEAM HEADLIGHTS DON'T WORK FUSES ARE GOOD AND

If you are handling the bulbs with your bare hands that is why your bulbs keep blowing out. use a washcloth to put the bulb in or rubber gloves, anything that will keep your hands from touching the bulb.

How do I clear a service emissions message on a 2005 Mercury Mariner with a 3.0L engine. I have performed the required maintenance procedures at both 30,9000090's and 60,000miles. Still have message.


Warning Messages The warning messages can interrupt the display until cleared or reset by the driver. The warning messages are either single cycle, non-resettable, or repetitive warning messages.
The single cycle warning messages display once whenever the ignition switch is turned to the ON position or a fault occurs in a system, and can be cleared by pressing the RESET button. The single cycle warning messages are:
  • liftgate ajar
  • liftgate glass ajar
  • service emission system
  • low brake fluid
  • service brake system
  • check left headlamp
  • check right headlamp
  • check left turn lamps
  • check right turn lamps
  • check left high beam
  • check right high beam
  • check brake lamps
  • check parking lamps
  • washer fluid low
  • check fuel cap
  • change oil soon
  • change oil now
  • low fuel
  • service 4x4
  • turn signal on

One of my turn signals wont work, both my headlights only work on highbeams


replace the high beam switch which causes this problem. Also clean the terminals for the directional light bulb. That will cause a negative continuity to the bulb

2005 Dodge Magnum low beams do not work


Obviously you have a connector which has come partially apart somewhere between the Headlights and the Headlight Switch. Most modern vehicles have several connectors between the Headlight Switch and the Headlights, Start at the Firewall Connector and work forward toward the Headlights making sure all connectors are securely mated. Another remote possibility is that you have fractured the "Low Beam Filaments" in BOTH Headlights. You don't mention how hard you hit the Speed Bump but if it caused the car to "Bottom Out" the front suspension it was a hard enough impact to fracture the filaments. You can use a 12 Volt Test Light at the Sockets for the Headlight Bulbs and see if you are getting 12 Volt power there. If you are in Low Beam position you have fractured the filaments. Check with High Beam too.

Low beams don't work


sounds like you are having problems with the relay. I suggest tracing wires until you find the relay and replace it. If relay checks out ok, it may be the switch itself.

Headlights


they are not on any fuse, headlights are never fused, they have what is called an intermittent circuit breaker built into the main light switch.
