2003 Ford Crown Victoria Police Interceptor V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 103000 miles
I recently began having headlight trouble when my headlights started to shut off while I was driving. I own a 2003 Ford CVPI. A few days ago I took it into my local garage and had them run an electrical diagnostic test to make sure it wasn't my alternator or battery going on me and they checked out normal. The mechanic thinks that it most likely is my headlight switch failing or that the switch wiring harness is going bad. I've also noticed that my headlights seem to dim when I turn on my window defroster and heater. The battery was installed this past august so it is practically still new and is the proper size along with the alternator. I replaced the headlight bulbs at the same time as the battery with Silverstar Ultra bulbs. My question is, do you agree with my mechanic's concensus and or could it be something else causing my headlights to go out? Oh, and its only the headlights that go out, my parking lamps remain lit and the high beam momentary setting still works when the low beams go out. All the fuses are still good too. Got any ideas and what can I do before I spend a bunch of money?
