    You probably have a couple burned out bulbs or bulbs that are not making a good connection. Your headlight switch may be bad.

    No, the 97 is different than the 01. Your switch should have 5 wires on the back, when the switch is selected on, check for continuity between pins 1 and 2. I'd also check the fog lamp relays, the wiring diagram I have for the 97 says there should be two relays for it. I'm not sure where.
