Headlight switch is the most common failure, then the wiring. I assume you have already checked the fuses.

Your multifunction switch (wipers, cruise control, brights) is bad, or better put, has a bad ground connection to allow the headlights to work. Yes the headlights are on a separate switch, but they reference ground through the multifunction switch.
