2004 crown victoria headlights don't work, replace - prev.gif next.gif Circuit Protection Fuses/ Circuit Breakers Flashers are serviced as part of the lighting control module.
(Special police packages have flasher units and relays in the trunk relay center)
The Lighting Control Module (LCM) contains controls for both interior and exterior lighting, back lighting, the battery saver and various warning chimes.
The LCM eliminates the electronic interference and heat associated with the thermo-electric devices (bi-metallic and other mechanical flashers) used previously. The LCM is a microprocessor module that commands several lighting subsystems. It responds to electrical input signals from the vehicles various switches, sensors, and external modules.
LCM subsystem functions include:

  • Headlamps with auto-lamps
  • Turn signal lamps/hazard flasher lamps
  • Cornering lamps
  • Parking lamps
  • Courtesy lamps
  • Demand lamps
  • Battery saver
  • Backlighting
Interfacing with the Driver Door Module (DDM) via Standard Corporate Protocol (SCP) for illuminated entry

Some people received a letter from Ford last April 2014, telling them the Lighting Control Module, or LCM, can quit working without notice so they had extended the warranty to 15 years instead of announcing a recall. It's called "Ford Customer Satisfaction Program 14N01". I called the Ford Dealership this morning and discovered I could get in Monday first thing to have it checked out, but the part is on a three month back order so they can't fix it, and so an appointment will only waste my time. It will be free, so call a dealership. I'd put money down that that is your problem. A facebook group is trying to get Ford to order a recall at .

    Just to update everyone: The Ford dealership was a pain to deal with! My LCM still isn't replaced and have decided to repair it myself as it's pretty straight foreward how to replace the relays. You can buy a "bypass" part that plugs into the original LCM from Dorman (part#599-200) IF only your headlights are out. Mine is everything though.

96 crown Victoria lights flickering on and off

This problem is caused by a heat damaged headlight switch and the connector to it, replace both parts, the connector is available as a repair part as well as the switch. When you replace the connector (A MUST DO!) SOLDER IT ON, NO SPLICE CONNECTORS! Shrink tube the connections. If you don't replace both parts then the new switch will quickly fail again and back to blinking headlights.

When I turn off my car its a 2004 crown victoria the headlights stay on for a long time how do I need to set the switch so that they won't stay on for a long time?

It sounds like the delay needs to be reset...You should have a set and reset button on dash...Mash the set button...look at the gauges and there should be a LED message window where the odometer is scroll with the arrows until you see headlight delay reset appear I think the maximum is maybe 3 or 5 minutes.....The best thing to do is check owners manual it will tell you exactly what I am trying to describe...THE HEADLIGHT SWITCH SHOULD HAVE A SELECTOR MODE TO SHUT THE DELAY OFF COMPLETELY.

Replace 2004 Crown Victoria headlight

From the engine compartment, unlock the 3 tabs that are over the headlight housing area. Remove the cover and unscrew the plastic ring that has the wires protruding from it. Carefully pulls the light fixture out of the housing. Pull the 2 L-shaped tabs up and remove the lens section. Reverse the steps to re-install the headlight. If replacing the full turn signal housing, unscrew 2 screws from each light , disconnect bulb wiring and remove. Replace accordingly.

sound like a faulty wiring try replacing the harness for the light switch (the big rubber thing you plug them into) or try checking the fuse for a burn out this could cause this problem

Headlight problem

I guess that means replacing the bulbs didn't work? The only other thing might be the dimmer switch. Its located on the bottom of the steering column, about halfway down fron the steering wheel.

Headlight module under the dash. It is the size of a box of crackers, not a small part.
