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!

Hey jcks did you find a solution to your problem. I need help as well

Same problem here with 02 F350 7.3 Diesel. Replaced lamps, dimmer. My problem is a short in the steering column, as I could get them to come back on by moving it. Now completely dead and am searching through the wiring to find the short.
