Question about 1988 Ford Ranger
I have a 1988 ford ranger, the headlights don't work, but the taillights do which could be a number of things. The wipers work, but when i turn on the lights the wipers do not work anymore, all i could see that they share in the wiring is the mfs, could it be anything other than the multifunction switch or is that deffinatly my problem?

What you need to do is remove the 2 screws on the top bezel from inside the engine bay, then underneath the outer corner of the plastic headlamp surround there is a philips screw, (put your head under neath car near from wheel) loosen the screw, do not remove it, now the headlamp plastic bezel/surround will come free enough so you can get a philips screwdriver in through the middle of the headlamp surround, there is a chrome retaining ring holding the headlamp in place, loosen the 3 philips screws (do not remove) The retaining ring will rotate and you can slide the ring out from the outer edge of the headlamp surround. The headlamp will then come out throught the middle of the surround, disconnect the 3 pin multiplug and reverse process for install.

that is correct , head light doors may be opened manually , repair
manual states turn on headlights , and rotate headlight door motor KNOB
clockwise until a click is heard . you will see door come up as you rotate the knob . you will find the knob under the hood near the headlight assemby

Sounds like you might have a ground problem.
In the morning its damp and might loose connection.Try an alligator clip
to a good ground.Test it in the a.m.
