So most of you probably have plenty of experience with headlights not raising/lowering/spinning knobs etc etc....I've read around and problems seem pretty rampant.

Well mine, do not respond to the switch AT ALL. I even went so far as disassembling the switch and manually triggering the contacts. No flipping and no lights, high beam or low...

What next, gurus? I have a multimeter if you think I should be testing certain contacts or relays. I'm pretty good with electrical but I understand the Fiero is a special kind of different and should be treated as such with sound and knowledgeable advice.[supposedly this is THE place] However...if I'm a big ol' dumbass, just tell me. Ain't gonna hurt my feelings. lol

85 Fiero GT.

Let me clarify further. No illumination on either headlight bulb.

You might have a bad fusible link, or some other fault. I think the best way to proceed is to carefully observe the exact symptoms and compare with the electrical schematic. With some poking around and experimenting you should be able to find the fault.

These schematics are for the 1986 model, not the 85. I don't have the 85. I don't know if there's any differences, but hopefully not.
