    Thanks for your help...the wiring is spread about at the moment and am still trying to find the problem....I think you are probably correct but finding the short is still elusive...I'll post a solution if/when I have it...

    My headlight problem turned out to be a short, to chassis, of the blue/red wire that joins the high beam headlights back to the dip relay and then on to the high beam warning light. This wire is only supposed to be joined to chassis earth when the relay operates. It was easier in the end to run a new wire from both headlights back to the relay and then on to the instrument cluster (difficult to get to that bit) as the loom is so inaccessible...allworks fine now.

    Thanks for input.

    same thing. mines a 93 prelude. brights are always on if headlights are on.. if i disconnect the high's it allows me to click the brights off. or at least the indicator light. i put a meter on the plugs. with lows enabled im getting 12v on both high plug wires. when i enable highs i only get 12v on the hot and continuity on the ground. mine only started when i swapped to new projector headlights. my lights worked fine on the last projectors i had.

It appears that your module in the steering column has a short or the harness itself. i would check the wiring harness first to see that it is not burned. in order to get to the module you will have to take the steering column cover off. you will then have easy access to it. i would suggest that you purchase a replacement module if it is defective from an auto parts store like Napa or Oreillys it will be far cheaper than at a dealership......please rate this............thanks

HEADLIGHTS WONT TURN OFF WITH SWITCH ON A 2002 FORD ESCAPE


Do they stay on with high and low beam? If high or low beam make a difference then you likely need a multi-function switch. If they stay on regardless of high or low beam your Daytime Running Light Module (DRL) may be faulty. It should be located on the rad support, ahead of the radiator. Once you located it, unplug it and see if your lights go out. If they do, replace the DRL. If they do not you likely need a headlight switch.

Headlights wont turn


sounds like the headlight switch is defective and needs replacing,but you need to check to make sure the rod that the switch pushes against if make the full travel and not short as this will not allow the switch to change from low beam to high beam.if the rod is travelling the full length then the switch is no good.you should also hear a click when moving the arm to go from low to high if not then the switch is bad.by holding the lever at a certain position to get the high beams to work this also indicates a switch problem.

Ford 2003 Focus. Low beam headlights not working. Hi beam do. Can get low beam to come on if flip between hi and low but don't stay on.


That sounds like a problem with the high beam switch in the low beam position. The contact is bad or the detent retainer isn't keeping the contact engaged.

98 ford lariat. Headlights stopped working. running lights come on and brake lights and turn signals. checked all fuses under dash and under hood, pulled out headlight switch and it looks fine. note only...


Is this both the high beams and low beams that do not work ?

If you checked all 3 fuses with a meter ( with the headlamp in Low position for both low beam fuses or in high for the high beam fuse ), the next items to test are the MFS ( MultiFunction Switch ) and the main headlamp switch ( test not look at it ).

Headlight problems


Hi. That sounds like the Low/high beam switch is malfunctioning and in need of replacement. I believe this because the headlights will not come on no matter which power source is attempting to activate them. Clearly, they are not getting power. Since the high-beam indicator light is functioning and indicating HIGH BEAM it IS getting power, There is no further interruptions in that circuit, save the fuse. IF the fuse is good,.. tested good.... Then the switch is bad, if the fuse is bad... replace it. If this doesn't solve the problem You have blown all your headlights simultaneously, or lost all the connectors to the headlights all at once, or possible got so unlucky as to lose all connectivity to just the headlights magically. I'd bet the fuse if I didn't believe that you would have checked that before posting the question here, and that doesn't account for the indicator to be stuck, so.... This pretty much leaves the switch ol buddy, sorry.
