Auto on headlights not always working

2002 Ford Taurus auto headlights work most of time but twice now all the lights come on automatically (dash and parking) except for the headlights.Does anyone know what is going on?I do not have daytime driving lights.I have checked the manual and all the lights are on the same fuses so there is no reason that is the cause.

SOURCE: Headlights won't turn on. Daytime running lights stay on.

See if you can hold on your highbeams, as a temporary solution, until you can check and see if the fuse in the switch to turn your lights on is burnt out. I had the same problem with my car and apparently it was a defective part that GM had produced, but obviously they won't replace it free of charge. I would suggest going to an auto-wreckers and picking up a new switch there... the part usually costs around $400 in Canada.

SOURCE: headlights and dash light dont work

You would have to check and see if you are getting any power out of the light switch. There is a seperate wire for the headlights and the dash lights.

SOURCE: ford expedition yr'00 headlight not working checked fuses..

The low beam headlamps have a seperate fuse for each lamp in the central or underdash fuse panel.
The right headlamp is fuse fuse 26 (10amp) and the left is fuse 28 (10 amp). These fuse are hot only when headlamps are on so you need to test them with a test light with headlamps on. If they do not have power to them then concern is either headlamp switch or daytime running lamp relay if your vehicle is equipped with this feature, or a bad multifunction switch.
Power leaves the headlamp switch on the RD/YE wire and goes to multifunction switch. It leaves multifunction switch on the other RD/YE wire The wire will then go thru either a connector c2003 located behind the passenger side air bag behind the dash or to the DRL relay if your vehicle has this feature and leaves there on RD/BK wire to the headlights .

SOURCE: Blows fuses when parking lights are turned on. Headlights work fine even running lights.

If it only happens when you turn the switchto the parking lights then it is most likely the swich that is the problem. Light swich failure appears to be a common fault with fords

SOURCE: Automatic headlights not comming on

Bad connection to the light sensor which will no doubt be mounted on top of your dash?

I have a 2000 Ford Taurus that was running great when I parked it yesterday. Today it will not turn over, all electrical is out.


Dead battery. You must have left the headlights on or something. Sometimes when you turn your lights on from the passenger side without opening the driver-side door, the headlights may not go out automatically. Been there, done that!

2002 ford taurus dash an tail lights wnt out......how do i fix th


Replace the fuse. Most of the time when the tail light fuse is blown it will go un-noticed. This is why they combine the instrument cluster lighting, and tail lights on the same fuse. That way if the dash lights are out you know the tail lights must be out also.

Hazards stuck, dash is dark when headlights on


I had a similar problem with my 2002 Taurus. I removed the dash and pulled out the display behind the steering wheel. I reseated all the light bulbs behind the display. Everything has worked fine since. You will find more info on how to do this if you search the internet.

The dash lights and rear brake lights in my 94 ford taurus won't work...i changed the lights twice and still no action!! its very frustrating because i cant drive when it gets dark..my dash board lights...


Hi,maybe i can shed some light on the situation.Are we sure it is the stop(brake light)lights that we are talking about?Or is it the tail light?I it is the tail lights,then it is most likely the head light switch itself.The dash light and running lights(tail lights)run threw the headlight switch.If I can assist you any more on this problem,let me know.roniecon@gmail.come

Parking lights quit working 2002 dodge ram 1500


does the instrument panel lights come on when you turn on the park lights only (no headlights)? If not it could be the switch itself.
