No high beam headlights 1996 crown victoria

Dash light for high beam headlights come on, but high beams do not work. Found no current to high beam plugs. Is there a fuse or relay for the high beams? All the fuses and breakers are working properly in the interior fuse box and the large fuse box under the hood. Thanks

Does the flash to pass function work? That uses high beam bulbs.

If yes, I would bet $100 it's the lighting control module. Very expensive. @ $500. Can buy for $250 @ tascafordparts.com.

Sometimes on Ebay for cheap price.

--------------------------------
Lighting Control Module Principles of Operation
NOTE: Due to varying wattage ratings and resulting current draw, certain aftermarket headlamp bulbs may cause the lighting control module (LCM) to shut down the short circuit protection, resulting in the low beams becoming inoperative. Verify that the headlamp bulbs meet Ford specifications.
The lighting control module (LCM) receives inputs from the following:

  • headlamp switch
  • multifunction switch
  • photocell and amplifier
Depending on the inputs received, the LCM will command the headlamps on or off.

Power is supplied to the headlamps through lighting control module Circuit 502 (GY) and circuit protection C in the fuse junction panel. Ground is provided to the headlamp bulb and retainer (13N021) through Circuit 57 (BK).

The lighting control module is located under the instrument panel, to the right of the steering column, under the lower steering column cover.

Removal and Installation
  1. Open hood. Disconnect battery ground cable (14301).
  1. Disengage three pushpins and remove lower driver side intrument panel (04320) finish panel.
  1. Locate lighting control module above accelerator pedal.
  1. Disconnect bottom two eletrical connectors from lighting control module.
  1. Remove two screws retaining LCM to bracket and unclip from bracket.
  1. Remove lighting control module from bracket and disconnect two remaining electrical connectors.
  1. To install, reverse Removal procedure. Check lighting control module for proper operation.
---------------------------------

the module is about 6 inches lng and 4 inches wide and has 3 wire connectors.

Hi there Well it sounds like its either your Light switch or the fuse has blown [but dose the high beam work if yes then its only globes or blown fuse so try the main beam and then test the fuses or just change them .

Headlight will not come on, high beams will not come on , the passing lights work, brake lights work. and then randomly the headlight will start to work


You most likely have a failing Lighting Control Module. Search the Internet for "Crown Victoria Lighting Control Module" and you will find hundreds of references, from how to repair it yourself (requires soldering and technical expertise) or how to replace (reasonable cost of $100-$200) or how to buy replacement modules on eBay, Amazon.com and other sites.

My headlights keep blinking on and off as im driving


you need a new module. it costs about 300 to 400 dollars to replace. I had the same problem. First time the lights went off I was on the Pa turnpike. only way to handle the immediate problem was to hold the high beam knob on until you hear the click that the regular lights are back on. then release the high beams. until the problem occurs again. invest in the module its safer.

High beams don't work


Hi,

Most of the time when the high or low beams don't work you have a bad dimmer switch. I would reccomend getting it replaced.
