The headlights work
Expert:  Pete replied 1 year ago.

I apologize for the delay as I was offline when you responded last night.

If you can the next step is to locate the 30 amp PTS fuse #3,40 amp RR CLR fuse and 30 amp PBD fuses and see if they have power on them with the key on or off and let me know.

Thanks Pete
