2015 Lincoln MKZ 2.0L (9) 6-spd (6F35)
B1D65-01
Headlight Swiveling Motor

Would like to know if someone has run in to this issue before, body shop replace the headlight assembly on the right side, now I have a code B1D65-01= Right Headlamp Swiveling Motor, General electric failure.

I have reprogram the Head Light Control Module, with no change at all. I have checked on all three source of information that I have, and the only thing that send me to do is to replace the headlight assembly, with a new adaptive front lightning module. ( Both have been replace already)

by the way today I got a call for two more with the same identical problem. After replacing headlight assembly, they have the information display with the message of headlight malfunction.

I am wondering if dealer is just selling defective units. Or wrong headlight for this Lincoln MKZ.

I have got to the conclusion that this headlight is ether wrong, or defective.

If you have not done so yet, I would check all the powers and grounds at the HCM and the right headlight. I had a similar code ( cant remember exaclty what it was sorry, but SI said replace headlight assy and it was a ground issue for the headlight itself. one of the odd ones not corroded but just hanging on by a hair due to accident damage)

Service information is tricky like that. If you find no faults in something it has you check its gotta be the module. Ford SI never has you voltage drop a circuit. This leads to many unnecessary module replacements. Ford is normally good about putting a purpose on top of each ppt step. There is a method to it, but sometimes the manuals test is not the best process, i.e. continuity vs load test…

Thanks Chris for taking the time to answer, the light work just as normal, but it does not have the dynamic from side to side (swiveling movement) I attach the vin on one of the pictures.

Looks like Ford is having site issues today. HVBOM is not returning any results. I'll try later for you

Looks like DP5Z-13008-S Should be the correct part for the right side, but there is also a note in the HVBOM listing to refer to the parts catalogue. Have you tried swapping the original module to the replacement lamp? Both headlamps show the same connector and pin assignments. Have you tried swapping L<->R to prove out the rest of the vehicle?

Thanks Chris, yes I have replace the LED module at the headlight, not the Headlight Control Module inside the cabin. Reprogram the module but no changes, I’m getting no where with this issue . this is the original part number DP53-13W029-AH

Like I said you can use the other side lamp to verify there are no issues with anything besides the Adaptive lighting module (led module on back of lamp) or the lamp itself. If the module swap makes no difference it would seem that the fault is in the lamp itself. the engineering number (stamped on the part not the box) DP53-13W029-AH shows as the correct number. Does the replacement lamp…

Thanks Chris, I have swapped the led modules behind the headlight, no difference at all. thanks for your help, this gives me a better relief that the headlight assembly is just defective.

Once again Chris Thanks for your help, found another headlight used from the salvage yard, replaced and problem solved. Dealer has the wrong inventory, or just defective headlights. The other two vehicles went to the dealer, and I talk to the body shop manager about what I found, and they were told by the dealer that their HCM is shorted, and they are going to replace the Module. I am sure…

Have you checked the grounds up in the right front of the Engine compartment. Im betting its either a loss of power or ground. Also check the connections.
