I checked all the fuses and they where good. I put in light I had left over I am almost positive they work but, my high beams will not work I tried to put High beams on and they will not stay on, click in at all. For now I have to hold the signal stick back just for them to stay on. Have no clue what is wrong. I did notice by my headlight there is a black wire that looks similiar to a break wire for a bike kind of not the tips but just the shell. Well on my one side the wire is fine on the other it is burnt and missing idk if that could be the problem can any1 HELP?
This is a problem in my 1997 - I did not fix it but this is how my headlights work - When my headlights are ON they will only work when the steering wheel is tilted all the way up. In any other position only the parking lights will come on. I changed many bulbs before realizing the ISSUE.
I have yet to take the steering wheel apart to clean or replace any of the contacts on the tilt mechanics of the steering wheel.

more than likely a fuse or a relay is bad. locate the fuse for the headlights (owners manual) and check if it is bad, if the fuse is good, find the relay and give it a flick or two and try the headlights then, if they work, its time for a new relay
Is this both the high beams and low beams that do not work ?
If you checked all 3 fuses with a meter ( with the headlamp in Low position for both low beam fuses or in high for the high beam fuse ), the next items to test are the MFS ( MultiFunction Switch ) and the main headlamp switch ( test not look at it ).
the following is what you can do to test to see whats going on turn on the headlights,put in high position
2.leave light in high, disconnect the head light dimmer switch, connect a fused jumper between head light relay supply voltage circuit of the dimmer switch and the control circuit of the head light relay. if the high beams come on then replace the dimmer switch, if the high beams don,t come on then.
3.use a fused jumper across the battery positive voltage supply circuit and the switched high beam voltage supply circuit. if the high beam come on now replace the head light relay, if the high beams don't come on then you will have to replace the LH I/P fuse block. I would most likely say that it's the relay just because of the year. I gave you a lot here I hope this helps
Fuse 22 and fuse 23 are left and right low beam headlamp fuses located in the PDC. 23 and 24 are high beam fuses. There is also a low beam and a high beam relay in PDC as well. If no headlights work I would check for main switch or multifuction switch (wiper/high beam) since each light has its own fuse and relay.
