Default Headlights on 2000 Century

Hello all, i have a problem on my 2000 Century. The headlights wont come on weather the headlight switch is pulled or even if the auto headlights are engaged. The rear tailights and the dash lights will work and the corners, but no headlights. The brights will not go on either. Can anyone help me with any ideas? Like i said the brights do not work either, hopefully that narrows down the problem.
Thank you

Since so many features are protected by fuses , that is always a good place to start. Usually in the owner's manual there is a diagram that shows the position and size fuse used and what features they protect. If those fuses check out OK, then check for a loose/missing ground wire up front that would be for the headlights. Those are the first things we confirm, power and ground connections.

I haven't had much of a chance to look at yet but was able to get the lights to turn on for acouple nights by pulling the brights (turn signal switch) on and off a bunch if times until they turn on. The brights won't come on, but the regular headlights will turn on and off as I'm trying to flicker the brights.
Question, can the problem be the wiper switch?
Will the headlights come on if the wiper switch is disconnected?
Thank you again
