I noticed my son's tail lights and 1 brake light were out so I got to the tail lights and replaced the brake light bulb and got that back. Started to look for the fuse to check the tail lights and found it good. Put the cover back on the fuse box and repositioned the relays behind the fuse block cuz they were just hanging. Now I don't have headlights or tail ights. The relay at the fuse block clicks when I hit the brights lever so I think I have power to the relay. The indicators still work, front and back, left and right. The hazards work. There are several big fuses in the engine compartment that aren't marked but all look good. Is there a fuse I'm missing somewhere else to check?

Look at the fusebox under the hood. If you are standing by the left fender check the 2nd fuse on the right. It's the 30A headlamp fuse. Not sure if that's you problem but it's something to check.

Thanks, It was actually the relay by the fuse box inside. It was clicking but it wasn't actually closing. I still don't have running lights though. The fuse is good and I swapped it with another 15 AMP as well. Is there a relay for the running lights as well? Any other thoughts for the running lights front and back?

There must be a relay because I hear the click when I turn on the running lights. I'm thinking there are two relays together there were you replaced that one for the headlights.
