Question about 2005 Ford Five Hundred
My headlight will not stay, there is a shortage! When I move the wire to the headlight the light will come on but as soon as place the wire down, the light goes off. When I wiggle the wire to the headlight on the passenger side the bulb will turn on and off. I took my car to the dealer but they are asking for $45 just to look at it and there is a deductible on the warranty which the mechanic stated it would be cheaper to have it fix out of pocket instead through the warranty....is there something I can do to get this fix without a heavy cost, like a do it yourself solution?
You can look at the socket, making sure that the prongs are not spread to far apart, also it may the wire is comming apart form the connector, easiest fix go to a junk yard and find a similar connector, cut it leaving tails on it for you can wire nut or splice into your vehicle. Hope this helps Tim

Check for a loose connection on the back of the bulb, wire in the connector for the bulb or a bad ground connection/ wire
all you can do with a visual inspection

right rear just in front of wheel. push clips back and remove old filter. apply new filter insuring flow is correct direction by arrow on filter press the clips back in place and you are ready. check to see if it is leaking.

SOURCE: AirbAg light Stays on! faulty!
I had the same thing happen to my 2002 Ford Escape. It would blink for a couple of minutes and then stay on everytime I turned on the car. A friend of mine who was mechanic thought it might be the airbag sensor connector under the driver's seat. In my case, that's exactly what it turned out to be.
Try this and see if it fixes your problem. It worked for me....
Check under your driver's seat. There will be a connector underneath. Unplug it and check both connections (the car is off of course). Over time they get corroded and dirty. I took a cotton swab and cleaned out the prongs within the plug. Bend them just a tiny bit so that when you reconnect them, the prongs will have better contact. After you reconnect them, turn on your car and hopefully it took care of your problem. My problem hasn't come back ever since.
Hope this helps...
