Use a test light to see if you have power at the bulb socket. If you have power there, and the bulb won't light up, your ground wire is not making good connection. If there is no power, keep checking backwards with the test light to determine where it stops. PS- don't touch the new bulb with your bare fingers. The little bit of natural oil on your fingers will cause the bulb to fail early, maybe even right away.

Explorer 2007 Right Head Lamp And HighBeam Problem


Have you checked the bulbs? There are individual fuses for each headlamp so you'll want to check those also. they are in the battery junction box which is under the hood on the driver's side, fuse 29 is for the right headlamp and fuse 34 is for the left headlamp.

Why The back lights wont turn on, is a 1997 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer?


If by "back lights" you are referring to the backup lights and 10A FUSE 26 in the interior fuse panel checks OK, the transmission range switch may be defective.

If the park lamps are not working, the headlamp switch or the park lamp relay could be defective.

If the stop lamps are not working, the brake on/off switch could be defective.

Daytime Running Lamps
The daytime running lamp (DRL) system is designed to turn the high beam headlamps on, with a reduced light output, and without illuminating the high beam indicator lamp in the instrument panel. You have a DRL Module.
The multifunction switch is the stalk on your column.

This is 96 F150 circuit. Don't have 94.
