the high beam drivers are C2 pin 12 and pin 7 in the front control module (white/gray and white and dark green respectively). Pin 12 is for the Right high beam output and pin 7 is for the Left high beam output.
If you verify the wire integrity to the best of your ability (check continuity from the pin at the FCM to the bulb socket, make sure there is not an obvious short to ground or power, then at the fcm turn the high beams on and probe in to the back of the connector while plugged in to see if it puts power out.
If you dont have power and have done what you can to verify circuit integrity (obviously seeing every last inch of the wire is boarderline impossible without massive amounts of time), so the aforementioned checks will give you a very good idea of circuit integrity.
It was a driver just like this that I have seen fail in a pt cruiser.
Know that I have seen the wire harness down by the frame rail rub on things and cause some shorts (below the battery).
If you replace the FCM, I dont think there is anything that needs to be programmed... I cannot remember, not something I comitted to memory as I like to hook the scantool up no matter what I replace and verify all is good. also make sure to plug in the OCM fuse (typically in a plastic cover not engaged in the fcm)... if you start your rig and your airbag light is on insert fuse here
