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

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.
