Any tips or ideas are greatly appreciated...
I have a 1992 Ford Explorer, 4-door.
Recently, I drove into a campground late at night, turning my headlights
on and off, so as not to disturb the sleepers. Early the next morning, I
discovered that my headlights didn't illuminate by pulling the switch.
Furthermore, the highbeams didn't work when I move the highbeam
(turn signal) switch into the position that locks the highbeams on. BUT,
when I pull back on the highbeam switch (to illuminate the highbeams only
temporarily with the spring-loaded switch), the highbeams DO work!
What happened? Which components are suspect? How do I test?
I did check the headlight fuse under the hood (and it sparked when I put
the fuse back in, with the engine off and the lights off, hmmm?).
