The only electrical part I've not replaced is the bcm and head light switch the guy I bought it from jump started it with cables crossed and fried everything even airbags deployed every light bulb and fuses replaced battery alternator radio climate control switch all vent acuators

I reviewed the wiring diagram the headlight switch is nothing but an input to the bcm the lights are controlled by bcm try disconnecting it if they go off you have a faulty bcm
