Default No Headlights!!!!

Now my head lights don't work... Is this the "White Curse"?? The parking lights and tails work fine. I got in my car to leave work and had to drive home with just my fogs, that was no fun. Once again all fuses and bulbs are good. Where do I start this time???

Typically the headlight switch. It has an internal thermal breaker. I don't recall for sure, as I don't have my manuals here, but you might want to check the fuses in the maxifuse relay center under the hood.

We should probably have you update you lack of interior lights post with this. Knowing that all these items flow through the headlight switch (IIRC) they may be related.

Have you removed the switch and looked it over, also check the connector.
