Yes I'm getting power into rheostat switch but no power out. I put a brand new headlight switch in but there was no difference

I had this problem years ago. Apparently they don't like mud! I pulled it out and installed a three way toggle for headlights and parklights. Another switch for interior lights. Ditched the rheostat. Been workin fine for at least 10 years.
