It may be the Multifunction switch (wiper/turn signal switch).

The headlight circuit goes through the switch.

Pull the switch back and then forward and see if the high beams come on or the high beam indicator in the instrument cluster lights up.

I have tried that as well and there is still nothing

I am not working vehicle at this moment I was searching help on line and came across this and wanted to see if I could get any information and try again to fix it tomorrow

No problem, I will be on line tomorrow evening after I get off of work at my dealership?
Did you replace the turn signal/wiper switch also?

Wanted to do some more research before aimlessly replacing parts. Replaced the 137 dollar switch and it didn't help

Do that test I stated. The contacts inside the switch may be fouled out and that will cause the headlights to be inop. Also, check the wiring connectors to it and make sure the wires are still in the connectors.

I would rather not call right now. Should I replace the stalk?

Do the test I stated and see if the high beams come on and the high beam indicator in the instrument cluster lights up first. The check the wiring connectors and the wiring to the switch. Do not replace anything just yet.

Also, read over the pin point test below first and let me know if you have any questions.

We can also talk tomorrow on this post.

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.
