Question NC Fairlane headlights switching off

Hi all,

Last 2 nights I have been driving around and the headlights flash off for a few secs then come back on for a few secs, off again, on again, this doesn't let up. Any ideas???

Thanks.

Matt

Give all the headlight wireing a good going over - start from the headlights and work back. Check for dirty earths, power to the relays etc - I think you'll find your problem.

Good luck

I had the same problem with my ED fairmont and traced it back to the 30amp circuit breaker for the headlight. It had water in it at some stage and was damaged and rusty as a result. It is located on the relay panel in the engine compartment and you can get a new one at any ford dealer for about $10.

Hi
there is a circuit breaker under your header tank that has two thick yellow wires going to it
replace this and your problems will go away
