your bulbs are burnt out. when you switch on the high beams its only the high beams. but when you flash your brights it lights up both high and low beams.
It could be the switch is bad, but that seems unlikely. Perhaps the low beams blew out? Or maybe it's a fuse.
Yes. That is by design. Pulling back on the switch is used for 'flash to pass'.
Bad low beam relay or dimmer switch
According to the 2002 Ford Explorer Owner Guide : The LOW BEAM headlights take bulb ( # 9006 ) Also , the HIGH BEAMS use # 9005
It sounds like the low beam/high beam switch is bad. Fuses are not the problem since they are built into the headlight switch and would cause headlights to blink or not come on for both high and low beam headlights.
Check the bulbs Check Hi-beam circuit breaker/relay Check the hi/low switch
This most likely cause is a faulty high/low beam switch on the floor.
It's the same switch as is used to turn the headlights on, just pull it out. The driving lights will not work at the same time as the high beams so make sure the high beams are turned off.
It sounds like your interior switch, it's faulty
If the bulb is not blown . it is probaly the multi function switch on the column
The low beam bulbs are burnt out. See the Sources and Related Links below for bulb info. Also, check your fuses...probably even before inspecting the bulbs.
I believe you turn your headlights on low beam and then pull out on the headlight switch
Yes , the ( 3 ) circles above the headlight switch light up ( OFF / park light symbol / low beam headlight symbol ) at least it does on my 1995 Ford Explorer XLT
Type your answer here... How do you remove ignition switch from 1992 ford explorer?
replace head light switch on 93 ford explorer
Usually it's a failed multi-function switch (the lever you use to operate the turn signals)
Try turning your headlights on ( on low beam ) and then pull out on your headlight switch ( that seems to be quite common on the newer Fords )
the high beams are basically the same as your turn signals instead of moving the switch up & down push it forward
To put the headlights on high beam you push forward on the turn signal lever and then release it , to switch back to low beams pul lthe turn signal lever back The turn signal lever is part of the multi-function switch located inside your steering column cover ( I hope I'm interpreting your question correctly )
If it's the same as the 1996 Ford Ranger , fuse # 33 is a 15 amp fuse for the High beam lamps
Bad bulbs or multifunction switch
I would start with the easy answer. Check both of your headlamps to be sure that the low beam filament is still intact. If all is well there, I would start leaning towards the multi-function switch (which is the headlamp / turn signal lever.
where is the head light timer on 96 ford explorer
On a 1996 Ford Explorer : It uses the ( # 9007 head light bulb ) which has ( 2 filaments ) inside the bulb for the low beam and high beam headlights ( 2 bulbs are required between the driver side and the passenger side ) In the dash there is a HIGH BEAM indicator light , located to the right of the fuel gauge and below the Anti-lock Brake System warning light In order to switch the high beams on you GENTLY push the turn signal lever forward away from you and to switch back to low beam , GENTLY pull the lever back towards you
