SOURCE: Headlights, high beams

No as a rule they don't fail at the same time, in fact it is unusual for the hi beam to fail ever, the problem is most likely in the turn signal/multifunction switch, this does cause your problem, have seen it many times.

SOURCE: low beam headlights

Try swapping #45 cooling fan relay and #46 HDM (headlight driver module) relay in the underhood fuse block. These are solid state modules and are not like conventional relays.

Just below the battery tray on the drivers side there is a harness plug, you can view it best from under the car. Usually what causes your problem is the wiring coming out of the plug gets corroded over time because of battery acid. Very carefully peal back the tape on the harness and look for any wiring that's green in color, this is what needs to be repaired by splicing in new wires.

Ford Electrics are a big PIA. Get a repair manual for the car. Get a DVOM and in your spare time start from the headlights and work back to the light switch. Look for the power draining with the meter. Start by checking the connections and then the individual wires. It's a long tedious process usually better left to a qualified ford mechanic. It's probably a bad switch though.

My 87 k5 blazer headlights don't turn on when the car is started and running any more... all 4 headlights turn on fine when I pull the lever all the way out for high beams

The vehicle should not have to be running for head lights to burn.If high beams work,then the low beam head lights could be burned out,even though they light up with high beams.The dimmer switch,can be the problem if the head lights only work on high beam.

From the symptoms you describe it sounds as though your headlamp switch is dirty, broken or out of adjustment. I would disassemble it and find out what is going on.

Headlights, low beam works fine but no high beam,

might not be. high beam is directly connected and controlled by the switch in the steering column. that would be a great place to start trouble shooting. i have found a lot of problems from contacts over heating and melting the plstic holders on those switches.

tnx 4 using fixya,
