You need to check the wires in the steering column. Take the column cover off, probably phillips-head screws, so you can see the wires. Somewhere the tilting function is putting pressure on the wires to the dimmer switch. It may be pulling loose a connection, just a fraction, to lose contact. You may also need a new dimmer switch. Or a multifunction switch if the dimmer switch is attached that way. The headlight switch is on the dash, isn't it? If it is, the headlight switch is not the problem, it is the wires in the steering column or the dimmer switch. If the dimmer switch fails, you will have no high or low beams, no head lights at all.
as there are a number of wires, and you dont want to short out something else.you shoul probably go to mitchell online and pay a small amount to get access to there repair info for your truck.you could also go to your library if you need to get it for free,it would take someone a lot of time to download this picture and info.if you have no headlights it could also be the combinsation switch behind the steering wheel, the dimmer switch, play with the dimmer switch a little to see if the lights come on, if so remove the plastic cover behind the steering wheel and remove teh two small scews that hold the switch on to replace it.
I would have to say that this odd problem is due to the headlight relay under the hood sticking when it is VERY cold. There really can't be any other cause. If this helps you, please remember to vote/comment. Good luck!
doesn't show a relay, just a headlight switch and dimmer switch, the headlight switch has an internal curcuit breaker so if something shorts it want let power out to the dimmer switch. hope this helps.
the dimmer switch is what your talking about im assuming its on the column if so the steering wheel will have to come off first to replace the switch when you get new switch refer to service manual on how to replace it
