Did you look at the connector?
Check relays and maxi fuses?

Your old switch didn't work and you replaced with what year that also didn't work?

I have a Chilton'* manual that has a wiring diagram for the 92 Bonneville it doesn't say what models it covers. Hopefully the exterior lighting is the same on all models.

Wiring connector to the light switch should have power from two sources. The orange & red wires should both have 12 volts. The orange wire (for taillights?) is protected by fuse #14. The red wire (headlights?) is shown as coming from the battery with no mention of being protected by a fuse. It may have a fusble link built into the wire.

Check those 2 wires for power & report your findings.

Wow guys very sorry to waste your time. I got looking a little harder and I bent a prong on BOTH of the headlight switches. I'm an idiot. So now I have headlights. And just for info sake the 93 headlight switch will work in the 92. That is the one I'm using because the ceramic is not falling apart. Thanks for all the help.
