    So does anything happen when you wiggle the switch? Or is it come on and off when hitting bumps? Need a bit more info. It could be the switch getting hot, could be a bad plug, loose wire, bad body ground, but I would guess it's the high beam switch.

    Iwent out yesterday and started the truck. Turned in my lights not on but so the dash light would come on and it worked fine. However when I switched them to turn on my headlights nothing no low or high beams.

    Check the tension on the headlight fuse clips - over time they lose tension and the lights quit working. Also check the grounds from the headlights to ground. Do the rest of the lights come on on the outside of the truck?
