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

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!
