okay thanks sounds good

This would either men the headlight switch has failed or you have a bad ground going to headlight switch. At the headlight switch there are two black wires, both should have ground. If only 1 has ground run a new ground if both are good replace the headlight switch. Let me know if you have questions, thanks.
