I had this same problem and i took my car apart and i found the wires that go to the rearview mirror shorter out right on top where they enter the headliner because the person that changed out my windshield used a tool to remove the windshield and accidentaly slashed my wires and shorted them out so my short were in between the mirror dimmer wires remove your roof console and and strip the wires and check for the short i know alot of people have this problem and i was told to disconnect my daytime running light control module but my explorer doesnt have this located by the driver side bumper so i had to look deeper and found this problem solved (peace out )

Headlights won't turn off


The weird noise is the relay for the headlights. You need to locate the relays and replace them. They are in the fusebox that is under the hood.

Rf highbeam doesnt work,after new bulb install 02 monteSS


Check for 12VDC at the connector with your high beams on. Could be the wiring or the connector and no they run on the same fuse.

My headlight-high beam does not work . its just that the highbeam does not come on


Probably the highbeam switch itself but check to see if there is a seperate fuse for the highbeams and if it's blown figure out why

Try putting your tilt steering wheel all the way up and see if it comes on. Ors did that and we had a pinched wire in the steering column.

Headlight wont turn offcole family racing


Only 2 things can cause this either the headlight switch or the headlight relay,chances are it's the switch,if you have a multimeter pull the relay out and probe the leads with the headlights in the off position you should only have power on 1 wire,with them on 2 wires are hot if this is the case then the relay is stuck,it's in the fuse box under the hood,another thing can cause this if the fog lights have been rewired to stay on even with highbeams on,power will feed back to the headlight circuit.
