Hi. Could you explain how you got your low beams to work again. I'm having this same problem on my 2002 Ford Explorer XLT. I just replaced my original steering column with one I bought from ebay at Schram auto parts and everything works fine except the low beams don't go on.They're really easy just take apart the clam shell on the column and it's very obvious how to replace. YOu may need to adjust the column down all the way to have enough clearance and move the gear selector but I did one myself back in '03 with no prior knowledge and it took me maybe 30 mins.
