headlight help!

Well my headlights stopped working last week and all of my night driving has been on my fog lights. I drive a 99 wrangler sahara. I just installed a new headlight switch and that did not fix the problem. When the problem initially occurred I looked through the owners manual and i could not find a fuse that was part of the Headlight circuit. All of the fuses are good anyway and the only thing that doesn't work are the headlights. Do yall fine fellows know a good place to start beside the headlight switch? The Hi-beams stopped working a day before both Hi and Lo beams stopped working which makes me think that it is the Hi/Lo switch. I have not dug into the steering column yet to get at that switch. I thought I would pick yalls brains and see if any of yall had run into this particular problem before. By the way I got the new switch from RockAuto.com and it was significantly cheaper than the switch from the dealer. Thanks for the help and keep on rocking in the free world!

I would begin with the wiring harnesses under the hood. Might be just a little corrosion. If that's not it, try playing with your fog lights, dome, parking lights, etc. It might work. I've seen jeeps do stranger things. After that, I'd check out the switch in the steering column and also test connections with a tester light.

Good luck to you and welcome to WF

Yeah, I'd stop playing around with that. It looks expensive.

try this Google Image Result for http://www.monsterautoparts.com/JEEP/wrangler/_WRANGLER%20IMAGES/2330836.jpg I did this when my turns and brakes stopped working after digging around for about a month. cured the issue. Of course you can find cheaper parts but this was just an example...
Keepin the peace.

The difference between sport and combat is that in combat you bury the one who comes in second.
