    Head lights

    My headlights are coming on automatically when it rains, headlight switch was recently replaced with
    an OEM unit, had this problem before the switch replacement, any ideas?


    Thanks

    Do you run it in automode? It may be the daytime running lamp module

    Did you know in some states its the law ? So Ford now programs your head lights to come on when the wipers are on.
    States With Windshield Wiper/Headlight Laws

    • Alabama
    • Arkansas
    • California
    • Delaware
    • Illinois
    • Kansas
    • Louisiana
    • Massachusetts
    • Missouri
    • Maine
    • Maryland
    • New Jersey
    • New York
    • North Carolina
    • Ohio
    • Pennsylvania
    • Rhode Island
    • South Carolina
    • Virginia

    So if you are driving through Maine or Ohio, for example, when weather conditions have you reaching for the windshield wiper controls, don’t forget to flip on those lights at the same time. Although most states don’t use this driving violation as a reason to pull you over, you could still face a traffic ticket and fines around $100.

    See page 38 of your owners manual : Autolamp Control
    The headlamps will also turn on when the windshield wipers are activated, after a 10-20 second delay

    My 2006 Milan also does this. Not sure when Ford started to do this. It was apart of 2003 Autolamp.They are the same in today's cars.

    Thanks
    When it rains, or when the wipers are turned on? They're supposed to come on when the wipers are on.
