Like a lot of other people, my issue started with flickering headlights. It keep getting worse over time. So I replaced both ballast, and bulbs. Then they still continued to flicker. For about a month I chased and chased this problem. I've gone to endless amounts of websites to find answers. So couple weeks ago, I decided to completely change both headlight assemblies. The ones I bought were compatible halogen headlights. They're much, much cheaper than HID's. Then I try to see if they work after I installed them. And now, I got nothing! No headlights at all, no flickering, just nothing. And now I don't have any front blinkers either. Can someone please help?

Do you have power and ground? this guide can help as check also we should check the fuses. here is a guide to help with that as well. also I have included the headlight fuse location ( 34, 8, 4 37 and 36) so you can check them with the headlight wiring diagrams so you can see how the system works.
