chapmnfarm: your head lights use a "2" fuse system.
one for the left and one for the right.
The fuse box you are looking for is under the hood on the passenger's side. It is a black box roughly 8 inches long and 4-5 inches wide. When you remove the cover, you will see fuses and relays. What you are looking for is the section in the box which has a cluster of 7 fuses. 3 in one row and 4 in the other. On the outer parameter are two relays. The fuses you are interested in are located in the row of 4 fuses, with the two closest to the "L" shaped part of the box. Both of those should be 15 amp fuses.
The fuse below those should be a 20 amp which is the lighting switch and the one below it is a 15 amp which is for the interior lights and the clock.
Check your harness grounds in the engine compartment near the area you have the problem. There are ground wires which come out of the harness on both sides of the core support. The wires are black in color and have "EYES" crimped onto the ends of the wires. Both of them will probably be located about 4-6 inches below the upper tie bar on each side of the radiator. Odds are that the eyes will be large enough to pass a 6mm bolt through.
I hope what I have given you will resolve your problem. Lem me know,,good luck>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

I have been driving my SAAB 9-5 with an engine light on for 3 years. I consistently get 29mpg average so I don't worry about it. I just change the oil, check the fluid levels and keep going. It is probably an O2 sensor and until your gas mlg suffers, I wouldn't. The dealer will hit you with a $90 diagnostic fee no matter what.
If you think this helped you please leave me good feedback.

Duralast / Relay - Headlamp
20601 Autozone: $39.99 I had the exact problem with my 2004 Envoy. You need to replace the Headlamp Relay. This is a very simple fix. The relay is located under the hood in box just above the battery. Pull the cover off of the box, look at underside of box to see layout of relays/fuses, i do not recall the exact abbrevaition used for the headlamp relay but there are only two relays in there that look like the one you need, just play with those two and you will get it. Do not take it to the shop, my wife took ours in and they charged us way to much to diagnose such a simple fix. You can test it before you buy the part by switching the relays that are the same around and seeing if your headlights work (they will). It is as simple as changing what looks like a big fuse.
