Looking at the diagram, I'd say your headlight switch is going bad. This design puts a lot of strain on the switch. Let me know if you have questions.

What color is the ground wire for the headlights on a 2003 Ford Taurus there is no black wire


After 2000 the headlight wiring was changed on most models.
The new system grounded the lights thru the dimmer switch and headlight switch instead of the switches providing power as in years past.
So you have a red/blk for low beam and lite green/blk for high beam which goes to the dimmer and then to the headlight switch.
Dark blue/white is power from one fuse and dark green/orange is the other side power. One fuse for each side.

Left headlights


Check your connections at the wiring harness going to headlights for corrosion, sounds like high resistance somewhere, also make sure your ground wires are secure. It wouldn't be the alternator or the battery would be dead and not start the engine. Also shouldn't be any condensation in your head light assembly's or will cause bulbs to blow prematurely.

The headlights on my 1994 ford taurus sedan are too dim. Even the high beams are not bright enough for safe nighttime driving. Also, the daytime running lights are always on the high beam position. I even...


the lenses are most likely clouded over? yellowed? sometimes you can buy a kit to polish them, but I would recommend replacement, polish doesnt last long, and you will need to replace them anyhow. the DRL lights are operating normally
