    driver side headlight/tail lights won\'t work...Help!!!!

    Been a while since I've posted but I need some spark chasers to help me out on this. I thought I had a bad bulb at first...well...I've tested new bulbs...same problem...Need some good advice as to what to do. my turn signals work, parking lights work and brake lights work....it's only the headlamp and tail light that do now work on the drivers side. no other electrical probs. what could it be?

    I just had a problem on my tail-light, the brake/turn signal bulb wouldn't light up and it turned out to be a broken wire. trace the headlight and tail-light wires into the harnesses and see if there is a broken wire somewhere. Other than something simple like a fuse issue, thats all I've got.

    you can also tryand clean the connections, sometimes you get corrosion there.

    that is strange
    the front harness and rear harness are usually seperate
    a one side is dead doesnt make sense as 1 problem
