Question about 2006 to 2007 Ford Freestar Tire Pressure Monitor Sensor Assembly SE

1 Answer

I have a 2006 Ford Freestar SE minivan. When I try to set the dimmer switch to bright, the headlights turn off. They do however stay on as long as the dimmer switch is set to dim.

The headlights only work on dim. when you try to set the dimmer switch to bright, they turn completely off. When you pull the dimmer switch again, located on the steering column on the left side of the steering wheel, setting the lights back to dim, they come back on.

What you are referring to is the beam selector switch, i.e., low beam vs high beam. The headlight switch on the dash turns on the headlights set to low beam. Pulling the steering column lever toward you flashes the high beams; pushing the lever away from you turns on steady high beams. From your description, I believe you do not understand the function of the beam selector switch.

My headlights are very dim when on dim.


If you had the wrong fuse, the fuse would blow.
Chances are its a bad connection somewhere, like the dimmer switch. You could test the power and ground at each headlight to verify.

My headlights wont work


I don't believe there is a fuse. There is a circuit breaker built into the headlight switch. If you are sure the headlight switch is good, it could be a bad dimmer switch. If you have a voltmeter, with the headlight switch turned on, a larger yellow wire going from the headlight switch to the dimmer switch should be a hot wire. The dimmer switch sends power on a tan wire to the low beams, and through a light green wire to the high beam bulbs.
If your high beam indicator on the dash also doesn't work, then it is likely one of those switches. A voltmeter or test light would need to be used to find which one is bad. If you can find the connector at the steering column going to the dimmer switch, pull it apart and check for power on the yellow wire coming from the headlight switch, with the headlight switch turned on. If no power, the headlight switch is bad. If there is power there, then the dimmer switch must be bad.

I have a 2005 Ford Freestar SE Minivan and cannot get high beam headlights to work. Have replaced bulbs, fuses are intact. When I switch to highbeams, the headlights go out completely. Low beams work...


AT FUSE TERMINAL #45 TO THE RIGHT OF THE HIGH BEAM RELAY AS YOU ARE LOOKING INTO THE ENGINE COMPARTMENT FROM THE FRONT OF THE VEHICLE. THERE IS A 15 AMP FUSE, PULL IT AND SEE IF IT IS BAD. IF IT IS REPLACE IT. THIS IS THE FUSE FOR THE HIGH BEAM RELAY.
