I had a headlight problem last year and it turned out to be not just the bulb, but also the socket it plugs into. It was melted. I found that several other people had theirs do the same thing.

Check your fuse, If that's good check to see If you have
voltage to the fuse , If you with a cheep test light from Harbor Fright,
If you don't have power check your light switch . If you do have power at the fuse , Check with the head lights on
each of the head lamp wires with the point of the
probe while you ground the clip to the negative(black) to the engine
If you show power there that means you have a bad ground wire by your head light or a eroded socket

    A test light won't tell you what the voltage is,you need to know that (volt meter is what is needed)



Have to do some voltage drops with a volt meter
to find ref voltages & grounds

Most likely will need a wiring diagram to find the problem

I suggest check the easy things first. Vacuum lines, could cause a lean condition, fuel filter restricting the fuel flow lean condition. Carefully clean throttle body with proper cleaner. I'm a shade tree mechanic but these simple things work sometimes. You didn't mention if you have the cvt trans. If you do and you are going 75 80 on the highway coming to a hill will cause it to race that high. Then when the hill is crested it will slow down, I don't like it either but it is the nature of the beast. I often cancel the cruise on big hills on the highway so it doesn't do that.

Ford Five Hundred head lights and dash lights are flashing.

I would check battery voltage with a meter when the lights are flashing to check alternator output. Might be a ground problem.

While driving the speedometer, the brake light and the abs light comes on the speedometer stop working on my 2006 five hundred

I had this same problem with my 2006 Ford Five Hundred. The instrument gauges would all fail and go to zero for a few seconds and then come back on as if nothing happened. During this issue, the reverse lights and "idiot lights" would also come on.

Everyone told me it was bad cluster gauges, so I replaced them and it was not the problem.

There were several cracked/broken wires leading from the main computer of the vehicle to the charging system. The delearship found the broken wires and it cost me $ 190.00 to have it fixed and the car now runs great, no more failure of the gauges.

Passenger side low beam not work even after replacing bulb

Hello , I believe that this car has seperate fuses for each head lamp. Also its possible that a grounding wire has come loose or been broken? Also did you touch the glass encasement around the bulb during the instal? Touching that will cause the bulb to blow the second you apply current to the bulb due to oil from the skin.

Driver side rear turnsignal bulb needs to be

This is straight from the owner's manual.

#1 Make sure the headlamp switch is in the OFF position and open the trunk.
#2 Carefully pull the carpet away to expose the backside of the tail lamp assembly.
#3 Remove the nut and washer assemblies, then pull the lamp assembly away from the vehicle.
#4 Remove the bulb socket by rotating it counterclockwise, then pulling it out of the lamp assembly.
#5 Pull the bulb straight from the socket.

Install new bulb(s) in reverse order.
Good luck
