Check the bulbs, ground and hot wires to the lights themselves. The bulb may simply be loose. If one of the wires is loose, and it's a hot wire, it could eventually ground out many other things on your vehicle. That could be a very costly repair, and it's best to check it out now. I hope this helps you, and I wish you luck on the repair.

Headlights do not work. Beam works, park lights and other lights work. Bulbs ok


more than likely a fuse or a relay is bad. locate the fuse for the headlights (owners manual) and check if it is bad, if the fuse is good, find the relay and give it a flick or two and try the headlights then, if they work, its time for a new relay

Hid's provide the most light on the market but just placing a HID into your existing lens will just Blind other drivers. actually placing hids into an un-approved headlight assembly can be a reason to be ticketed. some people retrofit a HID projector into their lights , they have the proper cutoff and focusing lens to keep from blinding other people.

I have a 2000 Ford Focus Wagon. tail light and instrument panel


i have a 2000 focus wagon and had the same problem. It's not the fuse! It's the wiring harness at the point where it leaves the body and goes into the hatch. When the hatch is opened and closed repeatedly after years the wires will break with constant bending. I had to solder together 7 wires and the problem was solved. It's a lot cheaper than replacing the entire wiring harness.

I replaced my main bulbs with hid xenon in my 98 range rover hse


First let me just explain something about putting HID bulbs in a reflector headlight, then I'll get to answering your question. High end cars use something called a projector with their HID bulbs and these projectors focus the light into patterns that won't blind other drivers with very perfect cutoffs (no light goes above a certain line). To retrofit a projector into your stock housing it takes a lot of work and careful measurements and thus a lot of time. But this is the only way to do a HID retrofit the right way.
Putting a HID kit into a reflector housing as you did, also makes light scatter everywhere, which creates many hotspots or high concentrations of light that make it much more difficult to see the road. Not only do HID kits in relfector housings make it more difficult to see, they are hugely illegal, and can/may get you pulled over and ticketed by a police officer. 
The best thing you could do insted of putting a HID kit in your relfector housing is to get higher wattage bulbs, OSRAM makes some great H4 overwattage bulbs. http://www.rallylights.com/SearchResult.aspx?CategoryID=6
If you purchase from rally lights (you need to purchase them in sets of two( I wouldn't go over 85/80 watt bulbs because it could melt your housing.)
Also make sure your headlights with stock bulbs are aligned correctly, most of the time this alone makes a huge difference as headlights droop over the years. 
If you are set on using your HID Kit illegally and blinding all other drivers on the road and willing to live with the risk of getting pulled over by any cop you run into. You will need to figure out how to trick ecu into thinking regular headlights are being used because its detecting the power being drawn for your HID lights to be a fault in the system that needs to be replaced. You can do this by wiring in a 55watt resistor to the circuit.

Driver's headlight is dim; wipers only work if headlight is off


Sounds like the jolt from the barrier has caused a bad ground to occur. Look for a bad ground wire around the left headlamp in or around the headlight bucket.
Tighten or replace the bad ground wire. A poor contact will cause the headlight to light dimly.

HID LIGHTS


You have to bypass the Daytime Running Light (DRL) feature. If you are good with soldering and know how to work with resistors and capacitors, you can EASILY fabricate your own bypass. Check out:

This is a forum that I actively moderate. I have tried option 3 which allows you to turn off your headlights completely and it works perfectly. Definitely the best option.
