Customer Question
I have a 2013...

I have a 2013 for explorer the rt headlight is not working.

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

I checked the fuses there is a separate fuse for LT and RT they both are good. I put in a new headlight switch it did not help. there is no power at the headlight. The signal the running light and the fog light do work on that side

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

Yes doing it myself.

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

When I scan the vehicle it comes up with a code of B1D01

no

The blue/green wire should have power which comes from body control module. So if wire doesn't have power this either means wire or body control module. Next step is to check if blue/green wire leaving body control module has power if so you know problem is wire if not you know body control module needs to be replaced. Here is a wiring diagram to help with testing, scan tool needs to be used to install new module so dealership might be best option at this point. It is about a $500 job, let me know if you have questions. Thanks.

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.
