Re: Headlight Problem
My 98 Ranger has headlight issues. The headlights sometimes did not come when starting out and sometimes just went off while driving. My first move was to replace the headlight dash switch. Now the headlights, except for the FTP, don't work at all. After checking the wires into the plug for the headlight switch, two wires had no current. I called the local Ford dealer about a wires for just from the switch to wherever the other end plug might be. I didn't want to only replace just what I can see, just in case I couldn't go back far enough to take care of the problem. From what I can see the wires to the switch look fine, except for the two that have no current. The parts man at the local Ford dealer must be on commission. He told me that EVERY SINGLE braid/harness behind the dash board had to replaced for this particular problem. I'm a contract killer, I kill bugs for a living, it sounded to me like he didn't know what he was talking about. What is the best way to fix this right? There is a local auto electrical place, but I just don't have $500. to put into this. Any help woulds be greatly appreciated. I did search, but only found close and similar issues. Sorry if this is a duplicate.
