I have a 1988 ford ranger, Headlight problem

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?

SOURCE: 1988 Jaguar Vanden replace headlight

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.

They shouldn't - they only work when you do a wash/wipe.

I'd be willing to bet your dash lights don't work either when you turn the headlight on.change the headlight switch, it has a short, it's only about 11 dollars at advance auto, and is fairly easy to replace. my 93 chevy did same thing, changed headlight switch, problem solved

Battery being drained while not running.1988 Ford Ranger.


The best thing i found to do is take off the NEGITIVE TERMINAL of the battery and hook up a test lite between the battery post and battery cable. This will light up if there is a drain on the system. If it does then this will let u narrow it down to where it is. If it don't light up then the battery is bad, have the battery tested at ADVANCED AUTO its free.

Need to replace the headlights in my 1988 ford ranger.


The bulbs are replaceable without removing the headlight lens. Open hood and look behind the headlight lens. You can twist the black round housing holding the bulb socket counter-clockwise and remove bulb with socket. remove bulb thru collar. Install new bulb (DO NOT TOUCH THE GLASS PART WITH YOUR FINGERS). Reconnect.

You have a bad ground, look out by the battery for a bunch of black wires screwed to the body of the car, check that they have a clean and tight connection, scrap off any paint under the wires.

Tail lights not working


THE SOLUTION WAS THE HEADLIGHT SWITCH. IT TURNS OUT THIS IS A COMMON PROBLEM ON THIS PARTICULAR MODEL. THE BROWN WIRE USUALLY BURNS UP. CHECK ALL WIRES AND CONTACTS BEHIND HEADLIGHT SWITCH. TO PULL SWITCH, THERE IS A RELEASE BUTTON ON THE BACK SIDE OF THE SWITCH. PRESS THAT BUTTON AND IT WILL REALES THE PLUNGER. PULL THE PLUNGER ALL THE WAY OUT AND YOU WILL BE ABLE TO PULL THE HEADLIGHT SWICH OUT. i JUST REPAIRED BROWN WIRE AND CLEANED CONTACT. VOILA.. RUNNING LIGHTS ARE NOW ON. THAT RELEASE BUTTON ON THE SWITCH IS A BOOG TO GET TO THO. GOOD LUCK
