I'm curious....what does MF stand for?

And what do you mean by flashing, like a strobe light? or in sync with something? randomly?

Sounds like a short - I think there is a circuit breaker for the lights under the Radiator overflow.

Yes a new headlight circuit breaker would fix your problem, about $10 from a ford dealer.

I was looking at the one in the spare EF today - It looks like a standard Hella/Ingram part - so any auto leccy could get you the right part. not expensive
