Hi-

How does the fuse look? If it is the fuse, then other items would be out as well.

If there is a relay, it may have gone out and you just have to replace it.

If the lights have gone out, you will know because the halogen bulb will be dark on the inside of the glass. These both may have gone out at he exact same time. Low Probability, but possible as the car is 4 years old.
Hope this helps.

Don't waste your time with replacing bulbs . . . it's either the fuse or the headlight wires that burned out. It's a big Saab problem.

Have a 02 Suzuki esteem and the headlights go off when the steering wheel is all hard right or left and battery light comes on dashboard. any ideas?


are you driving or parked idling
did engine stall? zero RPM = stalled, did it?
wow that sounds like fun,. not.
loss of headlights (HL) is clear, but simple!
as they work key off, so is a hard electrical failure.
with a voltmeter is 5min work
but here at blindmansblog.com (sic) we must guess.
my wild guess is,
1: battery terminals rusty, clean them, every year.
2: battery went dead. 12.6vdc rested is good, or more.
3: fuse for HL are loose or the main fuses underhood loose or bad.

Both headlights went out at the same time ? i still have side lights, spots and main beam


Depending on the year and model Ford, there could be fuses for the headlights, or a circuit breaker inside the headlight switch.
The dimmer switch could have failed.

Headlights went dead on my 2006 Suzuki Forenza


as far as I can tell from all the posts (and i have the headlamp problem w/ my '05) is that there is a well known problem with that, and was also recalled for defective wiring...

Possible electrical problems.


I would suggest that you check to see if the battery is connected properly---correct polarity!

If connected wrong, main fuse will blow. Lights come on because power is routed through the frame (ground) briefly.
Hope this helps.
