Headlights won't turn on in my 1999 ford mustang gt

After i there was a heavy rain in sacramento california, the following evening my headlights wouldn't turn on. the fog lights work fine, but not the headlights. Astonishingly , the next evening while driving on the highway at dusk, the lights all of a sudden turned on and worked fine for a couple weeks. Then it rained again. Lights haven't worked since.

Sounds as though you have an exposed electrical connection that's either getting splashed from the tires, or the moisture is creating a temporary disconnection. This can happen, but once it dries it will resume working. I would have your electrical system checked. I would also have your headlight switch checked for a possible short.

next time it does this, try spraying wD40 on the distributor, all around it. if this fixes it, you have a crack in the distributor cover. just replace it. good luck

Look at the attached AMAZON item (WD40... below)...
(old time remedy for wet weather issues... DIRTY & CRACKED
distributor caps... Spray on WD40 and wipe dry with VERY clean cloth or tissues only)).

It sounds like you might have a couple of troubles...

When having electrical issues... always start with your BATTERY CABLES & TERMINALS first... (clean & tight) and CERTAINLY
use these red/green FELT battery washers under each CLEANED terminal...
1 16 of 18 results for felt battery washers

"Hesitating STARTER" could be corroded battery terminals..
but could ALSO be a STARTER/SOLENOID trouble.

Do check that ALL bolts & fittings are tight and clean
(while you have the BATTERY DISCONNECTED....
(caution: very dangerous if you cross BAT & GROUND)).

Work SAFELY.

The circuit load is much higher with the HID lights, you need to rewire the headlights to a large gauge wire.

HOW DO YOU CHANGE THE BULBS OF THE FOG LIGHTS?


The fog lights on most vehicles sit directly underneath the headlight bulbs. The ballast and wiring work just like the headlights, so changing them takes not much time. The procedure to change the fog light is as follows:-- 1) Open the hood and reach down underneath the headlights to unplug the electrical plug from the fog light assembly. Squeeze the top of the release tab and pull the connection off the bulb's ballast. 2)Turn the fog light counterclockwise to remove it from the fog light housing. 3)Install the new fog light bulb.Then connect electrical plugs properly. 4) Test the fog lights by turning it ON. Thanks. you can rate this solution and show your appreciation.
