Having problems with your 2002 Ford F250 Super Duty SuperCab ?

Headlights do not turn on at the light switch.

\015 I have a 2002 F250, my headlights do not work in the normal switched on mode. Running lights run fine, and when I switch to only parking light, running lights are on, however when I switch clockwise to the "on" position, the headlights go dark. Additionally, the hi-beams do not work also, but will flash when I pull back on the turn signal. This is normal, to just flash the hi-beams. Any suggestions where to start looking?\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 15-01-2018

I have a 1999 Ford Taurus. The headlights will not turn off, even if the headlight switch is turned off and the car is off. I've even removed the headlight switch and the headlights remain on. The headlights can toggle on/off before I turn the engine on, but after I turn the engine on the headlights remain on until I unhook the battery. The same time this started happening, I also lost power to the tail lights and dash lights. The wiring, fuses and circuits all work as I can get them to light up

The lights will not change over from driving lights to headlights. Driving lights are on all the time. I turn the switch once to turn on the parking lights and when I turn it to the second notch the headlights are to come on which intensifies the brightness and the "DLR" indicator light goes off inside the car. What is happening is that the parking lights are coming on but there is no light increase and the "DLR" indicator is staying on even when turned all the way. Possibly a switch issue a

My 2004 Cavalier has two issues 1) parking lights will not go off when i turn off the car and remove the key from the ignition. I had to pull out the fuses for both main headlights. 2) my main headlights will not turn on even when we replace the fuses back into the fuse box. In short, the light switch on the car has no effect on the main headlights, however the switch still turns on the dash lights. And the parking light will not go off untill i remove the fuses...

Hello, I have a 2002 Kia Rio 4 dr. When you turn on the light switch for the lights to come on..the switch is supposed to turn on the headlights, taillights and light on the dashboard. Now the swtich will only turn on the headlights. The taillights or light on the dashboard won't turn on anymore. So this is more of a problem at night or when it is dark because nobody can see my taillights at night and I can't even see my speed because of no light to the dash. I am not sure what is wrong.


Check for power at the left and right tail lamp fuses in the fueblock. If there is no power check the TNS fuse. If there is power there than you can try swapping the TNS relay with another relay in the fuseblock that is the same. If there is still no ... Kia Rio

My problem is when I turn on the headlights, the parking lights comes but not the headlights, but when I hold the turn signal switch / highbeam to the rear the driving lights comes on but I will have to hold it in place to rear without clicking over to the highbeams for the lights to stay on. When I releases the turn signal the lights goes off. What causes this or is the turnsignal switch bad ?

2000 Astro van. When the light sensor turns the running lights up to full lights at dusk the headlights come up but the taillights (and most of the dashlights including the clock) turn off completely. The brake lights and turn signals still work. Turning the lights on by the switch does not override the problem. When started after dark everthing works the way it should until you shift out of park and then off go the lights. It must be a bad switch connected to the light sensor but I have no idea
