If the headlights are adjusted properly and it is still too dim to see properly, you can add a set of driving lights. A high quality set from PIAA or other high end lighting manufacturers will cost $200-$300, but it is well worth the investment. You can also swap the headlamp bulbs for a more powerful set, ask the parts store.

If your lights are shining at the ground right in front of the vehicle, I would suspect that they are out of adjustment and you should take the vehicle to a shop that can accurately align them.

I have a problem with the low beams on my headlights. The high beams works just fine. All of the other lights(turn signal, emergency lights, etc.) work except for the low beams.

Check the fuses first. then replace the turn signal switch if all fuses are good. All the lights run threw it, except the high brake light on the rear.

Do they stay on with high and low beam? If high or low beam make a difference then you likely need a multi-function switch. If they stay on regardless of high or low beam your Daytime Running Light Module (DRL) may be faulty. It should be located on the rad support, ahead of the radiator. Once you located it, unplug it and see if your lights go out. If they do, replace the DRL. If they do not you likely need a headlight switch.

Desicant drier

Can anyone point me to the actual service bulletin. My 2012 Escape did this (2000.00) My daughter's 2010 as well (4000.)
She took hers to a dealer while warranty was still good and they bled the AC (which we now realize pulled the dessicant back long enough to have it work poorly until the warranty expired.) 26 year olds don't have 4000. to fix the AC.

Adjust head lights to factory for 2009 ford flex

In a very level supermarket carpark at night, shine the headlights square onto a wall from less than 3 meters away. Chalk the height of each low beam's horizontal cut-off line on the wall. Then back the car up like 30 meters and the cut-off lines should now be lower but only slightly. Fiddle with the vertical adjusters until they look right. Temporarily cover the headlight you're not adjusting so it's really obvious which one's line is which.

Then you can check the left-right aiming using the high beams. Don't try to use the vee of the low beams for this, every bulb will have its vee in a slightly different place. To pickup the car's centre line, crouch down behind the trunk and sight through the windscreens using an imaginary vertical line (drawn between the trunk lock and the rear view mirror's stem) as your reference, and chalk that vertical line on the wall. Your high beams should fall either side of that line, and be about the same distance apart as the width of the car.

2003 Ford Escape -- no low beams

First solution would be to check the fuses. Commonly, the low and high beams are on separate circuits. Dont forget the interior and under hood fuse boxes. Use your owners manual and the fuse cover to find the right one. In some cases, there is a separate fuse for each light, but I don't think this is the case here. Sounds like a fuse. If it is, replace it and if it goes again, take it to your Ford dealer, or a local mechanic.

How to replace low beam bulb

You need to remove the back cover of the headlight inside the engine bay. There you will see both low and high beam bulbs. The low beam is the one that is to the outside crner of the vehicle, give it half a turn ad pull it right out. You do not need to remove the whole light assembly. The driver side bulb will be a little bit difficult due to space but it can be done.
