1978 firebird headlights don't work
« on: May 18, 2010, 07:52:13 AM »
so my headlights don't work.  Baught a new switch which matches up to the old part.  Did not fix it.  Baught a new harness off ebay........grounded to battery no power to headlight plugs.....the weird thing is the parking lights work fine as does the turn signals in both headlight switches..........and both wiring harnesses.........going to check pins in bulkhead connector now..............anyone have any ideas...........bad ground??

looks like you are starting in the right direction, start tracing the wire all the way back to the battery, starting at the headlights, sounds like all it is, is a wiring problem....
