Customer Question
Can auto beam sensors/headlights...

Can auto beam sensors/headlights be added to a 2017 Ford Explorer Sport after it leaves the factory?

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

No. It wasn't an original feature on the vehicle.

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

No. 10 thumbs and not mechanical, unfortunately. Will have a qualified mechanic or the dealer install, if possible. We have an incredibly good Ford dealership where I live.

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

Not at this time.

Just to get this clear, are you talking about DRL lights?

It is just a box that is added to the dash area for the auto beams. It detects oncoming vehicles and lights to keep the high beams from blinding people. They install pretty easy and are available for your make and model for your year. My dad has one from A1 Auto on his 2017 F150 and the lighting is setup the same. It just installs on the plug in the cab and controls the lights. Almost plug and play.

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

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.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

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.

BRNew Jersey
