Hey- Im new to the site. I just bought a sweet black baja bug that has a bunch of cool things done to it..I'll try to get a pic up soon of it..But first off I have a problem...I cant get the headlights to work, and the guy I bought it from isnt being helpfull.. They worked a month agao when he had it registered, but never have once i picked it up..Luckily it has 3 front baja lights on the front that im using for now (dont know if thats even legal.)
So I tried changing out the fuses, and that didnt work. He (the last owner) has wired the whole bug new, and I can see where the wiring goes and all..They look like theres no problem there...Any suggestions for me to try? I would think maybey they burnt out, but the chances of them both burning out at the same time are slim.. I'd appreciate any help- oh and Im a novice, I dont know much about cars....Thanks!

First step is to buy a test light. Then check at the lamps to see if they have power and ground. If they do replace the bulbs. If they don't you have to go backwards from there to find the open circuit.

Yup. You shoul dbe able to pick up a test light at any auto parts store and probably most hardware stores as well. Shouldn't be more than 5 to 10 bucks and is worth its weight in gold for simple electrical stuff. Take a minute or two to go read this quick page.
