Question on your switch fix as I will be replacing tomorrow on a 02 ZTS. Did you only have to push in the 2 tabs to remove the top cover or is there more involved. Shop manual is very vague.

thanks,

On mine there where 4. two close to the front of the cover and two near the back almost inside the dash.
I have tilt steering in mine. I suspect it might be different if you don't.
This is a super easy job man. You will get it. the only tools I used was my key to push in the tabs. Getting the switch out was kinda tricky but only because my hands where just kinda' too big to get in there.

That is a possibility, you will get more answers if you start your own thread about the subject though. This thread has been answered, and problem solved.

The best way to determine what is happening with the high beams is to use an electrical tester to see if the coil wire is energized when the high beams are turned on. That will tell you if the problem is on the dash side or the headlight side of the relay. The coil pins will be the small pins.

First post.

I have the same problem, no low beams and fogs. Changed a relay, nothing. Changed the turn signal switch, FIXED!!! I'm stoked as I bought this car two days ago with 120k miles for $2400. Fixing the lights is one of the few things I need to get this car back to safe running conditions. Wish I knew about autozone stocking this part, I had ordered a new one online so Friday I'll return the ordered unit to autozone.

Just thought I'd share my story and success as well.

Thanks, I fixed mine with switch replace. OEM Ford shop manual has a lot of detailed diagnostics for the focus. Look online and you can get a used copy fairly cheap. Watch out for water leak on pass side cowl panel. (It takes butyl rubber windshield sealer tape to fix)
