    Headlights..... Going on and off with no warning. After much research have found out it is the Lighting control module. It is a defective part on a 2003 model. I have called Ford Motor and they dont care!! They say they have not had enough complaints... BLAH, BLAH! This is a SAFETY ISSUE. I am going to go into a B***CH mode and fight to get this fixed by them. How would they like to be driving down the road and have their lights just go off and on!

    4/172014 *****CUSTOMER SATISFACTION PROGRAM 14N01.... CHECK IT OUT, LIGHTING CONTROL MODULE WILL BE REPLACED OR REIMBURSEMENT MADE IF ALREADY HAD DONE!!!!*****

    We have the same problem and I have written on the site..... If we all contact the following site http://www-odi.nhtsa.dot.gov/ivoq and write complaints they will investigate. I have spoken to them in detail. This issue has caused us to fail inspection prior to repairing which I have documented. If you have already gotten this repaired and we all file the complaint you would be reimbursed just like a regular recall. Please, I urge everyone that has written on this site to go to the NHTSA site and file a complaint regarding your malfunctioning headlights. For the company to say it is not a safety issue is just crazy.....

  • Headlights Work intermittently. Sometimes when i go to open the car and the headlights come on, i know they work. But while Driving and without warning they go off and i have to hold the high beams which is known as the Flash To Pass Mode

    headlights will not operate in any position of dashboard switch. The headlights ONLY operate when holding the stalk control pulled toward the driver as when flashing the high beams, AND, only the high beams will illuminate. VERY DEADLY! Resolution: Dealer diagnostic $75. Lengthy search by dealer for part...when finally found, paid $675 to have the LCM replaced. HINT - Get you defective LCM returned to you. There are 3rd party companies that could possibly repair it in the future. SaxMan, Nashua NH

    The car had 64600 miles on it and the headlights started going out while driving, which can be very dangerous. The problem is in the Light Control Module which is an expensive part (around $500 to $600 + labor).

    Parked my 2005 Mercury Grand Marquis in a loading zone with the hazard lights on for approximately 10 minutes. Went to turn the lights on to leave and could not get headlights to turn on. Only the high beams with the lever pulled toward me on the column would work. I haven't fixed it yet because of the cost. It's happened 3 times since then. Not happy with Ford if they don't recognize they have an issue in this area. I have purchased Ford products most of my adult life and think this is a lousy to pay back a loyal customer.

    The headlights are set to auto mode and they have started shutting off at night for no reason. They will not work when switch is turned to manual or auto. Very dangerous and I have heard that this is a common problem. File complaints with federal and state gov'ts - Consumer Product Safety Commission.

    First of all, my headlights would not go off.. I had to remove the fuse in order to turn them off. It corrected itself. Now they won't go on, no matter which mode the switch is in. I was told that the problem is in the turn signal/high beam switch. I'm waiting for my mechanic to get the part.
