1987 LINC.LIMO/EXCALIBUR..PROBLEM:2 HEAD LIGHT SWITCHS MELTED ?

I AM LOOKING TO SOLVE THIS ONGOING PROBLEM..CONSTANTLY BURING OUT THE HEADLIGHT SWITCH..
IS IT BECAUSE (87 LINCOLN..HEADLIGHT PLASTIC TERMINAL) CANNOT WITHSTAND THE HEAT GENERATED BY THE ELECTRIC POWER DEMAND OF THE LARGE EXCALIBUR HEADLIGHT CURRENT NEED FOR THE ANTIQUE CHRIOME LIGHTS...AND THUS IT IS MELTING THE PLASTIC 187 LINCOLN HEADLIGHT SWITCH ?
A FORIEGN CAR CUSTOM SHOP SAID TO TO THE FOLLOWING
1) INSTALL "CERAMIC UNIVERSAL HEADLIGHT SWITCH TERMINAL" MEANT FOR ANTIQUE VEHICLES
B) HAVE THE CUSTOM ELECTRONIC REPAIRMAN JUST FOLLOW/ TRACE THE HEADLIGHT WIRING AND TEST IT TO SEE CURRENT OUT PUT.. (WIRE TO THE NEW TERMINAL AS LEAVE A ELECTRONIC SCEMATIC PASTED UNDERNEATH THE DASH FRO FUTURE METAINANCE NEEDS..ALSO MAKE A COPY FOR THE WIREING CODE BOOK FOR THE INTERMINGLED 1987 LINCON TOWN CAR CHASIS / 1937 EXCALIBUR HEADIGHTS SWITCH THAT MAY NEED MODIFICATION..TO WOKR PROPERLY..?
WHAT IS YOUR OPINION... AND COULD YOU RECOMEND A USED PARTS HOUSE WHERE I CAN GET THE LINCOLN HEADLIGHT SWITCH AND ALSO AN EXCLAIBUR PARTS HOUSE WHERE I CAN GET THE EXCALIBUR HEADIGHT SWTICH AND SEE THE WIRING DIAGRAM AND ELECTRICAL OUTPUT OF EACH COMPARED TO THE TYPE OF PLASTIC THAT IS BEING USED..?
OR MABE THERE IS A SIMPLE SHORT CAUSING THIS PROBLEM.?

OK, if you are to modify the original system to use the Large Excalibur Headlights and you are burning out the headlight switch, I would try to ask the electric shop to put a relay in there that can handle the increased load and have it hooked directly to the battery terminals so that it won't burn out your stock switch which has plastic in it.

Left side headlamp would work on low beam only,replace with ner bulb but problem still exist


Hi,
Looks like the headlight relay problem or the main switch.
Check the headlight relay by interchanging similar relay on the relay box, turn on the head light switch when doing that.
If the relay is still in good condition, the problem would be the headlight switch combination, that's the usual problem of Nissan, the metal contactors melted down the plastic cam that pushes the metal contact. Replace it if that is the problem.
Clean also the headlight bulb base contact, there might only be a mis contact of bulb.
Hope that FixYa helps you out!

No head lights fuses ok have park light and tail lights


If the relay is also ok, and your connections to headlights are ok, and the headlight bulbs are ok then it is probably the headlight switch itself that has gone bad.

97 linc town car/ at night the auto head lights turn on. on low beam, works fine then when using turn signal the headlights go out. hit signal arm to high beam, and the lights come on, then i put back on...


You have a bad mutifunction switch or headlight switch is going bad and is over heating then cooling off comming back on Have a mechanic check it cause there are other things that can cause this. Since it's not blowing a fuse at this time I would say the head light switch is bad.

1987 supra left headlight blowing fuse


there is a really good chance that you have a bad power or ground wire. based on the age of the vehicle i would say that it is most likely corroded but it could also be cut or burned

I have no head light on my Honda Accord DX no prower in the fuse


Do you have power at the headlight bulb connection?If you do then it leaves only two choices bad contact between the bulb and head light lense(poor earth)or blown bulb.If you have no power you will have to back track to where the power has stopped flowing.Could be a relay,pull headlight relay out and put back in as a poor contact can sometimes stop head lights working.Let me know how you go and wether you need any other advice with tracing the fault
