HEADLIGHTS AND WINDSHIELD WIPERS

I have a 1988 Ford Tempo and have been having a problem with the headlights. The turn signals and brake lights work fine but the headlights won't turn on. Every now and then they turn on out of nowhere. I checked the fuses and they are ok. The battery clamps and wires look corroded. Could this be the problem? I dont have a problem with anything else electrical. Another problem is the winshield wiper broke right off and I can't get it out. What can I do?

Do you
have the same problem?

Get the battery posts and clams cleaned, however, if the car is working, then the headlights are another issue.
Check for good grounds from the headlamps.
Also, check for a fuse box under the hood and check the fuses there too.
If those fail, you either have a bad headlamp or dimmer switch.

Good luck.
