Tonight my low-beams went out. Both of them. The high beams still work. Once home, I was messing around and found that if I tilt my steering wheel all the way up, my headlights come back on. Tilt it down, and the lights are back off like a on/off switch. I'm guessing I have a short in the column or stalk. Has anyone had issues with this and if so, how was it resolved? I've had this truck for 12 years and this is the first electrical issue. Thanks!

They must have programmed the lights to work when you remote start. Most likely used a butt connector that's loose and causing the on and off effect. Bring it back to them or fix the connection yourself and use some solder so it never happens again

Ok, the wires/plug going into the back of the headlight dimmer/turn signal stalk are burnt and cracked the plug. The two most burnt wires were no longer connected and just loosely sitting in the harness. (Headlights work when wiggled). Quick question- do they sell the harness that goes from the dimmer to the bcm? And any idea why they got so hot? Bad dimmer switch? Thanks for any help. (Trying to upload pic)
