SOURCE: INOP low beam and high beams

The problem is the headlight switch itself - it's one of the most common failures on these cars. The part, brand-new, is about $158 from ECSTuning.com. Replacing it involves removing the airbag and steering wheel - not difficult but a little nerve-wracking due to the power of the airbag.

If this is something you want to tackle on your own, reply back here and I can give you a step-by-step on doing the work yourself. Or you can go to a shop/dealer and just have them do it. They'll probably charge you at least two hours' labor, even though it's a 40 minute job. Let me know what you would like to do.

SOURCE: headlights and highbeams switches

After reading your post, I am pretty sure the headlight switch is at fault. What happens when you turn the headlight switch to on and then actuate the high beam switch? If both low and high elements light up, I think that would be the headlight switch itself as the culprit. I don't have access to the wiring diagram you need, as that would answer your question end the guesswork on my part.

SOURCE: low beams dont work, only high beams do. 02 tacoma

If there is power there, then it has to be the bulbs. The trouble that most people have is, they don't see how both bulbs could burn out at once... and they're right. They don't. But you see vehicles with one headlight all the time. They don't know it unless you tell them or they happen to see it themselves. Then the second light burns out, and they think it's a major catastrophe, when in fact, it's just bulbs. The high beam still works because the bulb is double filament. The only other thing it can be is the dimmer switch, and since you switched it to high, it appears to be working. However, if it's not bulbs, it still could be the switch.

SOURCE: 2004 Crown Vic- Headlights come on when first

There is a resistor in the light control module under the driver side of the dash. You can replace the whole module which is about 100+ dollars or if you're good with soldering, replace the resistor. You will need to remove the box and open it up. Find out the resistor part number and replace it. This is a common problem on the 03-05 crown vics. Good luck

I have a 1995 Ford Explorer Limited and the high beams work but the low beams and fog lights do not, please help....


These trucks are known for bad multifuction switches.
the switch that i talk of is the signal switch , the handle is the switch, it bolts to side of steering column . this switch controls the signals and the headlights and high /low beams. the other thing is the headlight switch connector, the connector some times goes bad and starts to melt or just comes out of the connector. you will need to remove the cover to steering column, the screws are located under the bottom cover in holes. remove cover and check connector and then test for power if you have power going into switch but not coming out then switch is bad.

the last thing is to make sure the bulbs are good , make sure the headlight bulbs are good , and also the driving light bulbs, test for power at the connectors to those lights to.
You will need to do a little testing to find the problem.

Pulling toward you on the stalk only flashes the high beams (spring returns it to low beam position). To switch to high beams, push the stalk away from you.

From the symptoms you describe it sounds as though your headlamp switch is dirty, broken or out of adjustment. I would disassemble it and find out what is going on.
