    I went to the rescue of my brother in laws ford bronco...
    His truck would not start...
    I hooked up the jumper cables to my battery and then
    he hooked up his end..........

    the wrong way.....

    he pulled them off asap and placed them on the right way...

    well all said and done I towed his truck to his house...

    on my way home it was gettin dark and I turned on my
    headlights.........

    wait a minute they sure arent very bright....
    nope, they dont come on, at all...
    I tested the rest of the lights and everyone works...
    (except the reverse lights, I have never figured out why those dont work)

    well of course I had spare headlights in the garage and spare fuses... checked every fuse and even replaced the headlights..

    STILL NOTHING!!!

    someone please help, what could it possible be???

    Check the switch, more than likely that is the problem.

    Headlamps are fed directly off the fusible links.It's possible you fried one by connecting the cables up wrong.
