I'm not sure if yours works the same way but I just have a button on my mirror that you can move all the way to the left to deactivate it.

Remove the photo sensor module on the top of dash, looks like a tiny plastic eye or lens.

My headlights on my 2000 Mercury Mountaineer don't work. It's not the fuse. What could it be?


Check to see if your high beams work, also play with the combination switch that controls the headlights, it is typical for it to wear out and cause these problems.

There may be a switch on the dash to activate your automatic headlights. Some people do not like this feature and deactivate them. Look in your owners manuel for more infor on this.

The headlights do not activate automatically, in the auto mode, at night or with minimal daylight. However the running lights will activate in the auto mode. A new dash light switch was installed without...


The light sensor to control the automatic headlamps is located on the dashboard. This sensor is suppose to activate running and headlamps. I would suspect the problem is a relay to operate the headlamps if the car uses a seperate relay in the automatic mode. I'm assuming the headlamps work in manual on/off. FYI... The auto mode does not control the fog lamps.

No headlamps on 97 Mountaineer.


Buy 1 bulb and insert in each socket one at a time. If the low beam does not work on either side you know it is not because of the bulb. Then you will have 1 extra bulb for emergencies. Ask at autoparts about a headlight relay for lowbeam. When you wrote that highbeams work on pullback you did not say if they stay on high. You have "Flash to Pass" for highbeam which can be a different circuit. The automatic headlight switch is yet another set of contacts to go bad. You should set "auto" to off so you are not fighting this feature when testing. Good Luck

turn the selection knob to auto and leave it there. the lights will automatically come on whenever the sensor on the dash trips. it takes a minute in a tunnel but you will never have to worry if your lights are on.
