Either the headlight relay is stuck on. or the daytime running light module or relay is bad. to confirm find the relay center and switch the headlight relay out with another relay with the same part# on it. there should several in the relay center with the same part #. If this fixes the problem get a replacement relay. if not try switching out the relay for the daytime running lights. if no dice then unplug the daytime running light module.

I have a 2000 Ford Taurus that was running great when I parked it yesterday. Today it will not turn over, all electrical is out.


Dead battery. You must have left the headlights on or something. Sometimes when you turn your lights on from the passenger side without opening the driver-side door, the headlights may not go out automatically. Been there, done that!

Why wont my 1998 Ford Explorer Headlights shut off?


Does the vehicle have daytime running lamps ? Did you pull fuse from the inside the vehicle fuse panel ? I/P Fuse # 12 30 amp underhood fuse box is for the headlamp switch . Sounds like daytime running lamp module is the problem . But , without testing this is just a guess , by looking at a wiring diagram . Do you know what a automotive electrical wiring diagram is ?

Why wont my 98 Explorer headlights shut off?


Headlight switch? Headlights don't use the fuse panels. Is there a delayed off for the headlights? If so, this module might be defective.

Headlight keeps blowing


hi,

use the process of elimination, disconnect both headlights at the bulb and put another fuse in it and see if it blows. if the fuse blows without the headlights plugged in then its the wiring to the bulbs. if the fuse doesn't blow while the headlights aren't plugged in try plugging the lights in one at a time to see which headlight or socket is shorted. possibly corrosion at body to ground connections near the headlights, you may not see the corrosion, remove the ground wires and sand those ground wires down..

97 sho, my headlights wont come on and my parking lights wont go off??? replaced multi-function switch and the headlight switch


With my 98 Taurus with the same problem, simply replacing the fuse solved both problems. The fuse is under the hood - it was the small 30amp on the toward the engine side under the relays.
