Hello, do ths running lights work okay?
Customer: replied 9 years ago.
Reply to Fix It Man's Post: yes, the running lights are working fine.

It is a '97 limited.

relay fuses and regular fuses are fine.

switches were all replaced.
About the only thing you haven't replaced is probably the problem. The lampout warning module.It is located under the console finish cover. To check if this is the problem disconnect it and install fused jumper wires to bypass it.
You will need to install one jumper from wht/lght green to drk blu/wht and the other jumper from brk blu/lght grn to drk grn/orange.
Turn headlamp switch on and if working now you will need to replace the module.
I hope this helps, if so please accept. As always bonuses are appreciated.

That did it (partially)!
Only the right headlight works (I'm sure you're aware of this).
