  • Check the following Fuses
    • In the power distribution box under the hood, fuse 11 (20A)
    • In the interior fuse panel, fuse 33 (15A) for the high beams should be intact
    • In the interior fuse panel, fuses 4 and 8 (10 A each). These feed the low beams downstream of the headlamp and the Multifunction Switch
  • Multifunction Switch (turn signal stalk)
    • This switch may make a buzzing sound when switching between high and low beams
  • Message Center Console - Lights Out Module (LOM)
    • LOM - If you have a model with the Message Center you will have a LOM. You access it by removing the center console (just pull up firmly). You can replace it or you may be able to solder a faulty connection. It is common for the connections to work their way out or for the module itself to go bad.
    • Models with no Message Center Console do not have an LOM

The best way it to take your Ford Explorer to the nearest Ford Dealer. He will doubtless employ mechanics who will be glad to replace the headlight assembly.
