kik In your case it seems like you have a bad ground issue. Unfortunately you're going to have to trace the main grounds and go from there like the Captain said.

Captainrichhill Headlights are wired direct to the battery so to speak. It's a safety feature so if all else fails then you can see or be seen on the road if there is an electrical issue. I would look at the grounding points. It seems that anything that is fused is out. Start at the fuse boxes and trace the ground wires.
Just an idea.

1990 Wrangler will not crank-no electronics

A while back I was driving my jeep and the radio quit playing and the lights began to dim and the car slowly died like the alternator went out. I had the car towed home, tested the battery and it showed to be bad. I bought a new battery , installed it and still nothing. I took the alernator and had it tested and it came back ok. I replaced the battery cables too. I do not get anything. The accesories do not even work(interior lights, radio, etc). The headlights will come on, but that is it. Any ideas?
