View Full Version : very strange headlight problem
03-10-2006, 08:56 AM
got a 1992 ford mustang gt.
was driving around all night no problems, i go home briefly and head out again, and my headlights dont work. my fog lights, parking lights and tail lights turn on, along with my reverse lights, but no headlights.
my highbeams work (one is out) but i have to hold the lever, i cant push it back and have them stay on automaticaly, i have to manualy hold the lever...

Check your fuses?? Also i have heard of having a bad ground..no clue though..

this happens all the time with my damn fog lights, if they work only one will work till i kick the **** out of the other one, then it will turn on. its a bad ground somewhere. finding it is another problem though, id check your fuses like silver said and if not follow the lines from the headlight and you might find something

OK, check BOTH bulbs. I had a 90 LX and both bulbs would blow out at the same time.
Also, if I remember correctly you need to push the lever forward to keep the high beams on.

LOL actually it may be a busted headlight lever to!

Yeah, but pulling it back "flashes" the highs, while pusing forward keeps them on. Subaru is like this too, it sucks. You get used to where your stalk is, then it is out of place.

yeah i love the ford power. forward keeps high beams on. i think some cars you just pull it back once and you get your high beams.

My 90 Bronco had a little peg on the floor where most manufacturers put a foot rest that you stepped on to engage the high-beams.
