Default 86 samuri headlights

I have power to the fuse and the fuse is good but I have no power to the switch for headlights on my 86 samuri?

Unlike others, Suzuki uses a switched-ground scheme for operating the headlights, so the headlight switch is not powered directly. Get yourself a copy of the schematic (e.g. from my gallery) and you can easily trace out the current path.
