Check your fuses first. Dose you truck have daytime running lights(DRL)?

fuses all check out an it does not have drl or auto headlight switch iam leaning towards the dimmer but not sure i dont want to throw parts at it


Power for low and high beams goes through the headlight and dimmer switch. Flash-to-pass, goes around the headlight switch, straight to the dimmer. It still can be either part. With the headlight switch in the "on" position, check for power at the Red w/yellow stripe wire at the headlight switch. If you have power there, it's a bad dimmer switch. If there is no power, then it's the headlight switch.

Hey, I have the same problem. I've replaced the dimmer switch and the head light switch. I have new bulbs, I've done the pigtail to the headlights but still doesn't work. I've checked all of my fusses as well. Can anyone help? Thank you!
