If fuses are ok and you have voltage to the socket, replace the bulb.

    Look to see if a wiring connectoe came undone between the bulb sock and the fuse, or if a wire broke.

Both headlights out 1975 Chevy van Lark


Possibly 2 blown bulbs, if they are ok then check with a test light to see if there is power to the plug that connects to the bulbs by disconnecting the plug from the bulbs, turn the headlight switch on and then check for power, if no power there then check the fuse for the headlights, if the fuse is ok then it is possibly in the headlight switch.
Hope this helps with sorting out the problem.

The running lights and dash lights are on the same circuit.The brake lights and turn signals are on their own circuit.You need to use a 12v test light to see where the circuit is broken,starting at the fuse,then the headlight switch,then the dash harness.(If the headlights work,you at least know the headlight switch is getting power).

Lighting systems


The headlamp bulbs in these vehicles have 2 filaments- one for high beam and one for low beam.

Remove the bulb- being careful not to touch the glass part (oils from your skin can get on the glass and can actually cause hot spots and shorten the life of the bulb). You can see there are 3 wires in the connector. One will be ground. Using a test light, hook the clip to the poistive battery terminal and touch the pointed end to the metal contacts for each wire in the connector. One should complete the circuit and light the test light- ground is ok then. Now put the clip of your test light on the negative battery terminal. Turn the headlight switch on- high beam. Touch the point of test light to the terminals again and one should light- that's ok. Now make sure that the last wire completes a circuit when the headlamps are on low beam. If this checks out, look at the bulb and see if one of the filaments is broken. If your electrical checks aren't ok, check fuses- these are most likely ok, leading to a headlamp switch.
