Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Howdy, I just bought a 58 Ford Fairlane. All of the lights (signals) ect work
except the two front headlamps. If it is a fuse. Where would the main fuse be
located to change. Thanks

Try Faxon Auto Literature in Riverside, California for a reprint of the original factory shop manual. They have a website. In the meantime, look for a fuseable link down by the starter. Check the usual suspects, bad ground, bulb sockets, etc. On many earlier vehicles there was a circuit breaker built into the headlight switch. The headlight switch and/or dimmer switch could be bad as well. HTH. -Jim

Kurt, did you figure out the issue? I'm having the same problem on my 61 fairlane...

Check the earth on the dip switch make sure it's earthing properly. Other then that I put a light raeay into the system that fixed it.
