Angry 2001 7.3 headlight problem

So about two weeks ago I noticed my headlights would go on and off with the light switch in the on position. Soon after a while the lights just did not come on. But the high beams work. Sometimes they would come on after I cycled the switch a few times, but now nothing. I checked the fuses and ordered a new light switch. After that they still don't work. Just getting the high beams. All other exterior light work fine.

I was having similar problems with mine a couple years ago. The multipurpose switch was the problem with mine. It sounds like you already have that one ordered. Hope it works.

Faulty multi purpose switch, I would also check the headlight relay as well.
