    I went to go somewhere early this morning, and when I turned on my headlights i got nothing. I have brake lights, tail lights, turn signals, parking lights, reverse lights and dash lights. but no hi or lo beams?:confused:

    anyone have any sugestions on what it could be, All fuses are good, and all wires are connected, and my friend was driving the blazer last night, and I saw her come back and the headlights were on, so they were working a few hours before this happend

    The entire blazer has been re-wired with a painless kit, including bulk head and fuse box, i looked all over and the only thing i found was a flasher on the right side and a relay at the very bottom of the fuse box, i took it out, looks brand new, and doesn't smell fried or anything.. how do i know if this is a headlight relay and if its bad or not? I was thinking maybe a headlight switch, but since my dash lights and all other lights work, i'm thinking maybe it isn't......
