1997 Volvo 960 Question: Headlights have gone out--everything else works.

 

Question

Headlights do not come on--other lights front and rear seem fine. Fuses checked--and are OK.
Have looked around and see there is a relay, or possibly a switch at fault.
Any idea on prices for either of these jobs?
Would love to fix it myself having just paid $860 for front suspension work!
As always I really appreciate your feedback and advice.

    could be a headlight module or you have 2 blown headlight bulbs

    Thanks.
    I looked at the bulbs but could not tell.
    they each seemed to have a small pale circle
    on the glass there, but it all seemed intact otherwise.
    how do you check them?

    if you have a test light check for power at the plug if there is power there then the bulb is no good if you dont have a test light the easiest way would be to plug it in to another vehicle to see if it works then

    Thanks. I contacted a mobile mechanic rather than risk the place I've been going to and
    we'll see
    what he finds out.
    Thanks again for your help.
