normanahoyt :

Hello, my name is Alan and I am here to assist you.

normanahoyt :

The first think I need you to check is fuse #19 in the fuse panel under the left side of the dash.

normanahoyt :

Sorry, I gave you the wrong number. Check 20 and 21. 19 is a high beam.

normanahoyt :

Also tell me this: Did the bulbs look good?

JACUSTOMER-6dhop6xf- :

alan, i did check the fuses, and recheck them with a meter to make sure they were ok, .....the old bulbs were ok ...but i put the new ones in anyways.

normanahoyt :

Ok: Here is how I approach these:

normanahoyt :

1: Put power to those fuses long enough to prove that the circuit from there on out to the bulbs is good...I expect you will get low beams when you put power to these fuses.

normanahoyt :

2: Get to the wires that come from the light switch and check for power at the yellow/brown wire with the lights on and low beams selected.

normanahoyt :

Let me know your results

JACUSTOMER-6dhop6xf- :

ok, i'll try it in the morning

normanahoyt :

Ok, talk to you then
