The contacts in the dimmer switch, on the steering column, may be burned from the headlamps being on all the time. The switch has to be replaced. First check the low beam lamp filaments with an ohm/multimeter for continuity.

Where is the Dimmer Switch located on a 1991 Park Ave.?

The dimmer switch is located under the dash to the left of the steering column. Unfortunately I don't know of any way to get to it without dismantling the dash and the steering column. Even with those items removed, it was a real chore to get at it. When we replaced my dimmer switch, we got everything back together and found that the rod that connects the dimmer switch to the lever on the steering column was bending too much to activate the new dimmer switch. This job took all day and was a waste of time and money as we have a new dimmer switch but it is useless without fixing the connecting rod problem.

Why don't the headlights work on your 1995 ford ranger?

AnswerIf the lights work on the flash to pass but do not work otherwise either the switch is bad or the dimmer switch is bad. I just am working on a 1995 Ranger and found the dimmer switch to be bad. I checked the headlight switch and that was good so I found the dimmer switch to be the problem. I jumped the wires after unplugging the dimmer switch and lights come on. Replace the headlight dimmer switch and good to go! Hope this helps.

Why would your high beams not work but the regular headlights do?

Bad bulbs Bad dimmer switch Believe it or not, you can blow the filaments for low or high beams only, without affecting the opposite. However since it is highly unlikely that you are going to blow the same filament in both lights at the same time, I would suggest that you check your dimmer switch.
