Check for a burned out fuseable link near the starter. HTH. -Jim

Hello, Tell us more... With/without auto headlamps? Regular ford push pull w/rear ring for delay? Most likely not the fusible link, as the same circuit is for both signals/headlamps... Most problems I have seen is the fuse, relay, or the switch WIRING. Ford didn't use a big enough lead into the headlamp switch,...many times you will find the lead overheated, and not making connection. Hope this helps, AskTrannyMan
