If the light switch on a 99 Mercury Sabel is bad is it possible for the headlights to work and the tail lights not to work?

Yes. When you turn on the lights there is a circuit for the headlights, one for the dashboard lights and a third for the clearance and taillights. Any one of those circuits can fail independantly of the others.

Nonfunctional Brake LightsOne possible cause of this issue is that the brake light switch is not adjusted properly, or the switch could be defective.

If you have to hold the headlight switch out to keep the lights on, then the switch itself is bad. The switch should be a fairly easy part to replace.

on the same switch that turns your head lights on...you should see a little pull switch at the tip, when you turn on the headlights pull it out...it will not work unless the headlights are on

its on the left turn signal switch, at the end is the headlights, then one in is the fog lights, you twist it just like you would the headlights

What I do is put my headlights on ( low beam ) and pull the headlight control towards me to turn on the fog lights ( push the control in to turn off the fog lights )

Turn your low beam headlights on and pull the headlight knob out towards you to turn on your fog lights ( push the knob back in away from you to turn the fog lights off )

The switch is not a switch. It is a light for the ashtray itself. It will only be on when the car has the headlights or running lights on.

With most vehicles you can turn on the parking lights or the headlights and the dash illumination lights light up without turning on the ignition switch.

if you've tried hitting the high/low beam switch & headlights are out on both, then a bad headlight switch or headlight switch plug or high/low beam switch plug not fully engaged.

It is the same as the switch to turn on the headlights. Pull it out toward you.

Turn the headlight switch either to automatically come on (all the way to the left) or all the way to the right (headlights on manually), then pull out the knob.

It's part of the headlight switch. With the headlights on, just pull the switch straight out towards you.

You can,t switch between high and low beam in DRL mode. Only when you turn on the headlights with the HL switch.

Headlights,interior lights stop working.checked all fuses. I would suspect the headlight switch and/or the electrical connection at the headlight switch is faulty.

should be with the head lights as an alternate switch or in combination with headlights, move switches in different combinations to see if you can get them to turn off
