Question about 1994 Chevrolet Caprice Classic
Maybe power got cut going to the headlight switch. I think that would be a fusible link coming right off the battery source and going to the switch. Fusible links were used as power distributors before the era of maxi-fuses and power distribution boxes found in today's cars. Just like fuses, the link is designed to break and stop current flow if power demand is too high, like a short. Sometimes they get old and just give out. When the link goes, the wiring insulation may bubble or melt off some, the link may feel uneven or rough. Fusible links can be cut out and replaced with a similar rated new link. If you have no power to the headlight switch, look for a melted fusible link.

With electrical problems I always look for a bad ground wire, especially on older vehicles. Look for any wire that goes to an inner fender or the engine, there maybe a faulty relay in the circuit too. good luck, Chuck

This is a common GM specific problem. Your turn signal switch contains an elaborate networking device that has to cancel brakelights while running a turn light. Often times the ground within the turn signal switch is lost causing your situation. After investigating such other possibilities as fuses and loose grounds it may become necessary to replace the turn signal switch. Thank you, Dana

Day time running lights run low voltage to the high beam bulbs so it sounds to me like you need two new bulbs or you need to check the fuses and see if any need replaceing.
