Where is the headlight fuse in a 1987 ford econoline?


Truly theres not one other than the fuseable link at the starter soliod if the other lights work it's good. There's a circuit breaker built into the headlight switch. The dimmer switch can act like a fuse and fail as the connectors on to can too. If both lights on high and low beam are out, check the dimmer switch first. If you smacked anther car or hard object with the car you best cheak the lights first as they fail more often than anything else.
