Asked by Feb 23, 2014 at 03:22 AM about the Pontiac Fiero

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My head lights will flip up just fine, but the lights wont turn on, including highbeams (even
the high beam indicator on the dash) . ive replaced the switch and checked the bulbs to
ensure they weren't burnt out (which they weren't) and checked fuses (all were fine). Every
light (including panel and interior lights) on the car works but the two front head lights. Idk
what it can be

Check the wiring going to each headlight bulb. They were notorious for breaking because of the "pop up" action of the headlight doors. Replacement pigtails are available for these. HTH. -Jim

I agree with Jim. Also check the headlight relay.

Ok, ill check the wires again, which relay is the head light relay? there was one to the right of the left-side head light between it and the radiator and that one tested ok. is there another one?
