    Help, I have no lights on the front of my car. No headlights, parking lights, signals or markers, where is a good place to start looking? I did have the engine harness off of the car while we worked on it other than that where do I start.

    Thanks Jim

    If you did plug the harness,as Jason suggests,maybe the fusable link is burned.That would be the wire that goes on to the starter.There's 2 wires the,one is for the ignition,one for the headlights.These are actually fuses,so one or the other can burn.Bruno.

    Hey Guys thanks for the starting places. I did plug the harness back together and I put a meter on the fusible link and I have power leaving the link. I have gotten a turn signal to work for a little while so my plan now is the check all the ground connections near the headlights that connect to the radiator support. Maybe tomorrow I will figure it out.

    I had one of the spades in the connector squash over on me so keep that in mind too

    I an 80 Grand Prix that did that and it was the ground strap from the engine to firewall. Couldn't figure why it affected them and not others
