HeadLights Not Working...

So I went to go out last night and when I hit the door unlock bottom on the fob my headlights didnt come on! Was too late and dark to start looking at what it could be, but I doubt they both went at the same time! Guess Ill start with the fuses...Anyone have any suggestions!?

Bummer man. Yeah I'd check the fuses and make sure your connections to power and ground are not corroded.

Re: HeadLights Not Working...

Is it the new ones not working, or the stock housing?

Check the relays if you have them...Do you have one relay for both sides, or one for each side...I had 3 out of 4 relays go bad...I ended up wiring in heavier duty relays...

Re: HeadLights Not Working...

Have someone turn the lights on and off while you hold the relay..you should be able to hear or even feel the relay clicking open and shut..if not, check to see if there is power going to the relay, if there is,then the relay is probably bad..
