When you turn your lights on and put the high beams does the indicator come up?

No sweat dude, just the headlight/ dimmer switch combo i believe. Ive replaced mine 3 times, the last one from Autozone. Hated to get one from them but at 7:00 in the evening stuck in the grocery store parking lot you take what ever your girlfriend can get her mitts on.

Did you check the connection or see If the wires had been corroded or anything? My fogs did that a while back and that's what it was
