Headlight module recall


Asked by May 19, 2014 at 08:31 AM about the 2003 Mercury Grand Marquis

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The recall came at just the right time for me. Our local dealer did the work but now I have
another problem. For all the years I've had this car when I turned on the windshield wipers
in 15 to 30 seconds my headlight would come on. Since the module replacement this
does not happen. Is it a fluke that the lights came on automatically for 11 years?

Page 53 of my handbook clearly says "The headlamps will also turn on when the windshield wipers are activated, after a 10-20 second delay".What makes sense to me is that there could be more than 1 headlight module. One for models that have the above "windshield wiper" feature and a different one for models that don't have this feature. I feel it's likely that the recall replacement module is generic & does not have whatever is needed to make this feature work. I would love to know if this is the case.

That is the way I would think it is. Also would you please forward the link or phone number for the headlight replacement module place I have misplaced mine and I have the same problem
