Default Re: How-To: OHC Install

Need help...installed this OHV today following the instructions here. It works perfectly. However, now when I turn my headlights on, only the parking lights light up....no headlights. When I taped into the GEM, I unplugged the harness to get better access...did this screw something up? I tried disconnecting the battery, checked all fuses too...I'm stumped. Headlights are both brand new bulbs...tried swapping with one I had...not bulbs. Any suggestions? I also disconnected all wires that I hooked up for the OHV and still get no headlights. Now if I try to put the brights on pushing lever forward, I get nothing, not even dash light. If I pull the lever towards me, the brights light up.

So I started messing with the headlight switch and the headlights flickered...appears to be a bad switch. Funny how this switch would go bad while installing the OHV...I think my truck hates me.

when hooking up the wires to the radio with an aftermarket head unit do you hook it up to the aftermarket wires or to the oem harness. also will the wire colors be any different in my 97?
