The problem is either: The head lamp fuse. Check this first. If the fuse is okay, make sure you've got battery voltage to the fuse. If not, clean the starter button contacts. Besides crancking the starter, the starter button also cuts power to the headlight when you press it. Sometimes if you press the starter button and let it release firmly (by sliding your thumb off of it, letting it snap outward), will fix this type of problem.

My head lights dont work but all others do


Are you sure the bulbs are ok? Yes it would be a strange coincidence they both stopped at same time. Sounds like a ground connection to lights may be the problem. Trace wire back from head lights see if you see any problems. Heatlight dim relay may be the problem or conections to and from it. It's ground connection may be the problem.

Tail lights dont work everything else does


if you have a volt meter, turn on the lights and either take out a bulb or
unplug the harness going to one of your rear lights. the using the meter (switched to VDC) see if you power going to the lights if not, you have a wiring harness or a fuse issue. If you have power coming back to the light, switch you meter to Ohms and check to see if you have continuity on the bulb itself. you can also check your fuse with the meter on the Ohm setting.

Bypass head light switch and see what you get. Three items can cause your problem . The head light switch, flasher relay , shorts in circuit. I would go with switch.

1993 Ford Escort 4-door: Back-up and license plate lights are out. All fuses checked = okay. All bulbs ohmed out/visual = okay. All other lights are functioning properly (parking, brake, turn, headlight,...


the back-up lights would probably be a bad reverse switch at that point. I'm not sure what could be causing the plate lights if its not fuses or bulbs and all the others are working. I would highly recommend checking your bulbs one more time and look to see if the filaments are smooth or pitted. if they are pitted but otherwise appear to be ok they are in fact burnt out. I have even seen bulbs n that condition ohm out ok but still not work.

Reverse lights dont work.escort van.1.8 none turbo.2002.


With engine off and key on, emergency brake set, place the gear selector in reverse, using a volt ohm meter check for voltage at bulb terminals. If voltage is present then the switch is working and the wiring to the lamp is good. Next check the other terminal with the ohmmeter to ground for connection. Sounds like a bad ground.

Could you take out a bulb and with a testlight/probe check that you do in fact have power to that circuit .Also check that they are the correct bulb for that application I have seen people put indicator bulbs in where therse supposed to be a double filament bulb.Does the base of the bulbs lead contacts line up with the two steel terminals inside the plug?
