There is no relay. What you need to do is check the ground at the headlights first. If that is good, trace power from the fuse thru the diagram at link below. Also make sure the headlight switch conne tor has ground and that the appropriate wire from the headlight switch supplies ground to the lighting module on the requisite pin corresponding to the headlight setting. Basically, pin 10 should be getting ground from the switch on the red/yellow wire when the headlight switch is on. You can test the downstrean circuitry by using a jumper from a ground point to the red/yellow wire terminal. If the lights come on, you know the switch is not supplying ground. What you have is a wiring issue.

SOURCE: Battery wont charge in my 1997 ford crown victoria

In the 1995 and later Crown Victoria's, there is a fuse in the fuseblock that controls the alternator's charging of the battery. If that fuse is blown, your car will drain the battery and cut off as you stated.
Check the fuse block under the hood and the one located on the left driver side above the hood pull.

My headlights were going out while driving on my 2005 grand marquis.So I replaced the wiper/combonation/dimmer switch and the problem came back after a couple weeks


Well it could be the headlight switch, or the light control module, or a wiring problem. The headlight switch provides a ground signal to the control module, which sends power to the dimmer. There are fuses between the dimmer and the headlight bulbs.

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.

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.

this is just a loose fuse or connector wiggle the connector of the lighting control module just above you gas pedal under the dash.turn lights on try to kick slightly the module(black metal box).Sometimes you need to open it and re apply heat and solder on the relay terminals fixed on the board.
