NO headlights Vectra Grand Tour

I have a 97 winnebago vectra grand tour and both headlights have gone out on me. It's not the bulbs and I cannot for the life of me nor with the owners manuL locate the headlight fuse!

There's nothing labeled headlight in the fuse box in the front of the bus and I can't find it anywhere.

Please help

Pretty sure you are going to have to look at your chassis manuals, not your Vectra manual for info on those fuses. Headlight power/relays etc are usually supplied by the chassis manufacturer. In my case, mine are documented in my Freightliner manuals, not my Winnebago Vectra manual. What chassis do you have?

Not sure if you've already checked your wiring book to see if it will help narrow it down but if not, here are the links if you need them:

Usually, headlights use a resetting circuit breaker for headlights and not a fuse.

Look at the wires on your headlight switch. I had a 96 Vectra Grand Tour and one of the wires burnt in two. I spliced on a new wire. I also removed some of the bulbs in the lower front running lights to reduce current draw through the light switch.

I had installed separate tail light bulbs on my towed and after fixing the wire I replaced the bulbs in those tail lights with LED's to further reduce current draw through the light switch.

Later I had the headlight switch replaced and the spliced in wire was beginning to show charring of the insulation. I felt Winnebago just had too much current flowing through the exterior lighting system and should have at a minimum installed relays for the towed vehicle lighting.
