Customer Question
My head lights are...

My head lights are acting up. When I turn them on, my right headlight, blinker and fog light go dim. And my right turn signal lights up and my fog lights are both onn but not selected on.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the fuses? Have you checked the bulbs?

I've tried tapping the lenses to see if there is a loose connection. it doesn't flicker on any of them. if it was a fuse they wouldn't work.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Ford?

2006 F-150 lariat, 4 X 4, 5.4 ltr.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your F150 yourself? What have you tried so far?

I am. I'm just getting started. looking for ideas or quick fixes

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Not that I can think of right now.

Hey Moose, sorry it took awhile to get back to you. Ok, they do the same thing with the high beams on. Checked the fuses and relays all check good. Found the right blink bulb blow so I R&R'd bulb, no help still doing the same thing. Suspect a short somewhere. Since I don't have access to a schematic I'm not sure which wires to check.
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Never mind I found the short. Thanks anyway.

I don't know about paying you another $26 dollars though...??? Since you really didn't do anything for me.
Ford Mechanic: Chris (aka- Moose), Technician replied 7 months ago

Sorry you could not reply sooner so I could post an answer and get paid for helping.

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.
