Problem: Headlamp is out, with the "Bright" indicator displaying on the instrument panel.
I had replaced a bulb a year ago, so I basically know what to do
.

I bought '3' new H7 bulbs, but none fixed this partcular problem.
I tested the bulb connection, and found that I was getting the ~12v through.
I referred to the Clymer and for my model it does not show a fuse for the headlamp.

Feel free to beat me over the head and tell me what I overlooked.
Thanks..

Check the brown ground wire inside the headlight.. A source of lots of problems...

Agree with Dan re the ground wire. I had a problem about a month ago on my 01LT (92K) with both lights out. But lights on the dash were ok. Turned out the ground wires (brown) in the headlight chamber are located just underneath the low beam bulb; they must get a lot of heat and cook. Very difficult to reattach without taking the entire front tupperware off, so I reran two new ground wires out of the headlight chamber to the right horn, and attached them there for a new ground. No problems since.
