Check fuses, check the headlight switch to make sure everything is connected. Also, the switch may be bad.

Pretty sure the switch must be bad. Fuses seem ok. Everything seems connected.

You need to unbolt it from the rear and there is a small button you press and it will release the **** so the switch can come out from the rear.

Thanks, ill try it !

Let me know if you get it.

Got the switch out fairly east following your directions Jacobandnickolas. Seems like it will go back in easy enough too. Just tracking down a replacement now and hopeing that the switch is in fact my issue. Will update after I find one, thanks again !
