Question about 2015 Ford Taurus

1 Answer

When turning on/off high beam, there is a loud CLUNK which can be heard inside closed window car with low volume radio as well as outside.

Took to dealer.. they said it was vent for light opening and closing.. I say why would such a nice car have such a cheap CLUNK sound?

If the car is equipped with HID lights, using one bulb only, they install a mechanical system that actually changes the position of the bulb when switched from low to high beam.
Might be worth looking into.....

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: headlights flickering

This could be caused by a lot of different things,,but usually it is the fault of the Headlight Relay.
Try replacing the relay before going further.

SOURCE: Low beam head lights not

if the fuses are good then you need to check for power and ground at the headlight plug that attaches to the headlight bulb if you have a good power and ground there and the connections are good then the bulbs are both no good.or if you can tell the bulbs are burnt out by looking at them then you don`t have to check powers and grounds.you also can directly feed power and ground to the bulb and check both the terminals for high beam and low beam as you cannot tell which is which by looking at the terminals

No low beam. Good high beam. No day lights. What's wrong?


No on the fuse . The LH HDLP and RH HDLP fuse in the fuse block - under hood, supply battery positive voltage to both low and high beam lamps at all times. For manual operation, when the headlamp switch is in the ON position, the headlamp switch supplies ground directly to the headlamps and to the body control module (BCM) on the headlamp low or high beam signal circuit, depending on the position of the headlamp dimmer switch. The BCM uses this signal to determine if the conditions are present to illuminate the daytime running lamps or park lamps.
The headlamps may be turned on 2 different ways. First, when the driver places the headlamp switch in the ON position, for manual operation. Second, with the headlamp switch placed in the OFF position activating automatic lamp control (ALC).For ALC operation, the BCM receives a signal from the ambient light sensor indicating a low or high ambient, outside, light level. Under low light conditions the BCM grounds the headlamp relay control circuit energizing the headlamp control relay. The now closed relay supplies ground through the headlamp switch to the headlamps and the BCM on the headlamp low or high beam signal circuit, depending on the position of the headlamp dimmer switch. When the BCM grounds the headlamp relay control circuit it also grounds the park lamp relay control circuit illuminating the park lamps. The headlamp relay is grounded at G203.
Daytime Running Lamps (DRL)
The low beam headlamps operate at reduced intensity when in daytime running lamps (DRL) mode. The ground circuit to the switch side of the DRL relay has a resistor in-line to reduce the intensity of the low beam headlamps for DRL operation. The body control module (BCM) receives a signal from the ambient light sensor indicating a low or high ambient, outside, light level. Under daylight conditions the BCM grounds the DRL relay control circuit energizing the DRL control relay. The now closed relay supplies ground directly to the low beam headlamps and to the BCM on the headlamp low beam signal circuit. The low beam headlamps now illuminate with reduced intensity. The DRL relay is grounded at G203. Any time the headlamps are illuminated the DRL will not illuminate. Manual park lamps do not effect DRL operation.

Low beams for normal night driving are not switching on


This is likely due to a dimmer control switch. put the lows on and wiggle the switch around and see if the lights flash on, if no then it can still be the switch.

My 2004 madza 3i high and low beam are too low. I have to use high beam to see the road. Is anyone know how to fix it?


This is not hard to fix. Wait until it is dark enough outside to clearly see your headlight beams, then park your car on level ground 20 feet from a wall, fence, garage door, etc. Turn on your headlights (be sure your high beams are off) and open the hood. on the top of each headlight assembly you will find an adjustment screw... just turn the screw with a Phillips screwdriver until the hot spot in the center of your headlight beam hits the wall where it meets the ground.

Cannot adjust low and high beam headlights separatlyLexus LS 430


Shine your head lights on a wall either in your garage or outside wall and re-adjust your head light back to were you think you had them last. Use the high beam and the low beam settings and you will be able to beam the light were you think they should be. Common problem with most new vehicles now days, low beams don't seem to be bright enough.

!997 Chevrolet S10 headlight problem


ya know it kinda sounds like the headlight switch that switches from high beam to low beam has a bad contact. You don't have one of those 4-beam modules that turn on all 4 lights on high beam do you? that thing screwed my whole headlight system up, I ended up throwing it in the trash.

I have the chiltons and haynes manual, I'm sure between the two we'll find a good diagram. I gotta get my youngin to open house at school, but I'll pull the books out and send you the wiring diagram.
