Re: No head light, no start. Everything else is normal??
No headlight makes me think you are missing the ground at the starter. That ground also serves as the ground for the load shed relay that cuts off the lights during cranking. The starter is isolated by rubber o-rings on each end where it goes into the transmission (for reverse) and the rear engine intermediate housing. There is one 5mm bolt that is at the rear of the starter and it is the only thing that provides a good ground to the starter.
It is rather difficult to get to but look down just in front of the battery for that elusive 5mm allen at the rear of the starter. You may have to remove the battery to get to it with a ball driver. But before you go that far make sure that the high beam is also out as well (could just be a burnt out bulb).
