Default Need help asap!

Just bought a 98 TA and the head lights do not work. I know the motors are usually a problem but not this time. The lights do not come on at all. the bulbs do not illuminate and the motors do not make a peep. I have all of my other lights just no headlights. HELP!!!

3 Things stick out in my mind...
- Blown fuse or loose connection
- Bad headlight switch or faulty connection
- Faulty brain box (known for having corrosion & connection issues)

Welcome to LS1tech! SEARCH will be your best friend.

You'll need to do some basic electrical troubleshooting as suggested above.

Do you have any experience and abilities to do this work?
