How To Test Ford Focus Headlight Switch Wiring 

Testing your brand-new headlights should be done right after installation. Ensuring you that they’re working as expected. There are a couple of ways to do this.

The easiest way to test them out is by turning your headlights. Make sure that they aren’t dimming or flickering when powered on. Otherwise, check for mismatched or loose connections to your Focus’ headlight switch.

You can also use a multimeter measuring Ohms to check your headlight switch’s circuit. This test lets you know if your switch supplies enough electricity to power all of your Focus’ lights.

Now you’re ready to upgrade your Ford Focus’ stock headlight assembly. Ensure you have the correct copy of your car’s diagram beforehand to avoid hurdles during installation.

Hi, I'm Graeme, the author and owner of Before I started this hobby site, I used to work alongside my 'Pops', helping out as he worked as a mechanic for over 50 years. Twenty-five of those he was running his own Auto Electrician & Body Shop, where I fell in love with vehicle lighting. I've taken all our experience online (that's not his gig)… so it’s safe to say there are very few people on the internet who can match our expertise and deep understanding of vehicle mechanics, repairs, parts, and especially headlights.
