If there is no power going to the headlight trace the wire back and you may find a splice near or under the washer fluid container that is corroded. My car had an improper white plastic snap connecter there that should have been a proper sealed splice. This was put there by the factory and my service technician took 2 hours to trace it because he never seen that kind of connector used in that spot before. good luck Emmery On my 97 zcar the previous owner had headlight problems so he rewired all the front lights to a working parking light wire.Whe I bought it I put it back like it was suppose to be.Then went and got a headlight/blinker cluster(the blinker thing on the collum).Changed that ..all problems solved.
