Question about 1997 Mercury Mountaineer

1 Answer

No headlamps on 97 Mountaineer.

Parklights work and so do highbeams when you pull back on the lever. But no low beams and there are no blown fuses.

    No it does not.

    I replaced the headlamp relay in the relay module but still have the same problem.

  • Russell Shelley Jul 28, 2009

    I am going to insert a bulb in each socket one at a time to see if it is the bulbs.No the highbeams only come own when you pull back the "Flash to Pass lever no other time, and the autoparts do not have a listing for a relay for lowbeams only headlamps.

    The 97 Mountaineer with none working headlights was a blown inline fusiable link in the wiring harness under the battery in the frame rail so thanks with all of your comments and feedbacks they really helped a lot.

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

    Since the "Flash to Pass" is the only power to your headlights and you have replaced the relay, the light switch is the only thing left. I had the main wire melt in the connection and put 1 new end on and was good to go. There is never enough room to see what you are doing under the dash.

    You may want to look at the tailights to see if they work when the headlight switch is in different positions.

2008 ford ranger headlight relay bad? Lamps do not light up, checked BULBS..OK no left highbeam Left and right lamp fuses ok and hi/lo 30a fuse ok


Did you check the fuse circuit for voltage, use a testlite or something.
I posted part of headlamp wiring. You understand your dimmer switch is involved in the circuits.

Explorer 2007 Right Head Lamp And HighBeam Problem


Have you checked the bulbs? There are individual fuses for each headlamp so you'll want to check those also. they are in the battery junction box which is under the hood on the driver's side, fuse 29 is for the right headlamp and fuse 34 is for the left headlamp.

Right headlamp


Check the fuse for the passenger side.It is under the hood. it may not be making good contact. wiggle it a little bit and see if it makes any difference. if not, check where the the ground wires are connected to the chasis. See if thats not the problem.
