    My brights aren't working and I can't get the car to pass state inspection until I get it fixed. The headlights and both blinkers work, I replaced the bulbs and the fuse is good. What else should I check for? Thanks

    A couple questions before we go any further:

    - Do you have HIDs or just stock bulbs?
    - When you try and put the high beams on, does the high beam indicator light up on the cluster, or no?
    - When you pull the multi-function switch towards you (as if you were going to flash the highbeams at somebody) does it do anything?

    Might have some dust in the turn signal/high beam knob.

    don't check THE fuse. Take my word for it go and check EVERY fuse. Its amazing how often the fuse blown has nothing listed with the problem at hand according to the manual.

    Do you have a voltmeter/test light and know how to use it?
