I finally got the front section of my GF back together (stupid snow + stupid tree= bad)and I noticed something rather annoying(since I need to register and inspect it this month). I HAVE NO LOW BEAMS! I have after market headlights and so I though first well lets see. I pulled the stock bulbs out and hooked it up and sure enough still no lows. Pulled the under dash cover off and found a mass of tangledness thanks to Best Buys crack-pots I mean crack-team of experts. So I unhooked the Viper splices running through the Colum harness and rehooked them normally to ensure a good connection but still no lows. Where does anyone have a wiring diagram of the lighting controls? 97' GF

Diagram, list, anything anyone? I don't have the money for the Manuals right now, and I need to get this thing street legal for inspection!

Since the hi-beams work this means that the power side of the lighting should be ok. The ground side of the lights is controlled by the light switch. I would try looking at the light switch wires then figure out which lead is for the low beams. By grounding the wires one at a time you should be able to see if the problem is with the switch and which lead goes to the low beams.

Back tracking the wires in the way has already not yeilded me any closer to the answer. That's why I"m looking for a diagram of exactly what's what.

You don't have $34.95? That's all it costs to get a subscription to download the manuals-
