I have a 5.8 2000 F 150 4x4. When I turned my head lights on my passanger's side head lights comes on but not my drivers side. When I turned on the high beam my driver's side light comes on but my passanger's side light goes out.

Re: F 150 Head light issue
You know the fuse for the high beams is good ( Cab fuse panel fuse # 16 ) and the pass low beam fuse ( cab fuse panel # 26 ). Might want to check cab fuse panel fuse #28 ( this is the driver's side low beam ).
If this fuse has power on both sides ( with the low beams on ) next you can pull the headlamps, and check for power at the connectors, but depending when the last bulb change took place, I would say you need need bulbs. ( need at least 1 for the high beam out ) Confirming with a meter at the headlamp would be a good idea, before spending the money.
The bulb connector has 3 pins. Black wire is ground on both sides Light Green w/ Black stripe wire is high beams on both sides Driver Lo = Dark Blue w/ white stripe Pass Lo = Dark Green w/ Orange stripe.

The dash and tail lights are on two different circuits, and the brake and turn signals are on different circuits, so at least 4 circuits total.
I would start at the headlight switch and check for power on the first two issues.
The basic problem is too much resistance in a circuit. You have to figure out which one and where the resistance or short is. You can take the fuses out one at a time or all at once to see which circuit is pulling too much current. It could be a faulty ground somewhere and the lights are grounding thru the wrong circuit. Or something shorted together and pulling current thru the wrong circuit. Like the headlights running off the dash light circuit. You may need a book with wiring diagrams to know what to check.
Answer I have a 96 Jeep...You just unplug the wire to the back of the headlight. Grab the headlight and pull. There are three snaps two on the bottom and one on the top. I used a little grease on the new snaps. Clean socket and push head light back into place making sure all three snap into place. It took me 15 minutes to complete the drivers side. You have to take the Battery out to get the other wire off the head light on the passanger side. I did not have to use any wrenches to complete this job
difficult one this ??do you mean the indicator front light drivers side is dim?? Now as for it not starting with headlights switch in the on position and the headlights not working then i can only assume that the wires in the multiplug connector behind the steering column are playing up ,either shorting across or the the wire insulation has fused together.Without motor in front of me its very difficult to say whats wrong,this is the sort of job for a dealer only type mechanic who only works on one make of vehicle.Because they will have come across this before no doubt unlike a bodgy old cowboy like myself who will take on anything with an engine.
