OMG If it ever goes out again, try a Salvage yard or aftermarket part.

SOURCE: 2004 ford crown vic. intermittant probs with low/high beam.

I finally bit the bullet and took it into the dealer. It was indeed the Light Control Module (LCM). The dealer said there was not a service bulletin issued on this problem but when I asked the service manager to talk to the Ford rep about assisting with this safety issue, it took all of ten seconds for him to come back on the line and say that they would fix the whole thing for $100. (My car is not under warranty and the LCM alone is $480). Not sure exactly what happened behind the scenes but it appears Ford would rather fix this than have an issue made of it. (This is a privately owned car that does have wigwags and other emergency lighting equipment installed. These were not a factor).

SOURCE: How to replace high/low beam switch on 2004 Ford Focus LX?

Should be fairly easy. Make sure to disconnect the positive battery cable. Remove the cover from around the column behind the steering wheel. Should take a star driver to remove the screws holding the cover together. Once the screws are removed pop the cover apart and you will see the multifunction switch on the column, should have two to three screws holding it to the column remove the screws and it should come out pretty easy replace with new one and put back together.

$35 sounds right for the lever. It definitely sounds like it's your lever acting up as the contact seems to be stuck

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, and other sites.

There is a resistor in the light control module under the driver side of the dash. You can replace the whole module which is about 100+ dollars or if you're good with soldering, replace the resistor. You will need to remove the box and open it up. Find out the resistor part number and replace it. This is a common problem on the 03-05 crown vics. Good luck

2004 crown victoria lights dont work brake lights dont work turning light dont work

If it is an '04, the lighting control module (LCM) is most likely the culprit. The LCMs were largely no good for '03 and '04. It is located at the bottom on the instrument panel basically above your right shin. Easy to replace, but kind of pricey.

No high beam headlights 1996 crown victoria

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 @

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.
