Re: head lights wont go one please help!!!

We need more information, but the most likely cause (if not a fuse) is either the lighting relay or the dimmer relay.

Which fuses did you check? There is a fuse panel under the dash on the driver side, as well as an under hood fuse panel. The fuses and relays for the headlights are in the under hood panel.

Did you try the high beams to see if hey work?

It's either the lighting relay, located in the under hood fuse panel, or if the high beams work, it's most likely the dimmer relay, also located in the under hood panel. Here is a good link from the online factory service manual...

Let me ask you this...did you try your low beams after you lost the high beams?

Re: head lights wont go one please help!!!

Sorry man, at this point I would suggest that you check all your grounds and make sure they are all making good contact. It will take a while to work through them all, but I know for a fact that weird things can happen if any are loose or corroded. Here is a link showing where all the grounding points in the car are located. Good luck...
