I went to turn on my 1970 Nova this morning and the main headlights wouldn't turn on. All of the turn signals, front panel lights, the dash, and even the tail light turned on fine. It's just the main headlights. Where should I start? Please Help!!!

the headlights have their own power wire.. red to pin 1...

the headlights switch output is a yellow wire to the dimmer switch..

please... pull the connector off the dimmer switch on the floor..

there are 3 wires on it.. a yellow wire to the center terminal.. that is for the headlights from the headlight switch..   see if you have power there...

from the dimmer switch.. you will have the headlight positive voltage from the center terminal yellow wire to either of the outer terminals..
