Question about 1996 Volkswagen Jetta
Sounds like it is a blown fuse. The high and low beams use a different fuse. Open the driver door all the way, and locate the fuse panel next to the steering wheel on the side of the dashboard. Pop open with a screw driver. The card and chart on the cover will show you the fuse you need to pull out and inspect; this can be done with your fingers. If the fuse looks burned or broken, then replace it and it should work again.
If the fuse blows out again, then there is a wire that is broken or deteriorated, and is causing a short. It will have to be repaired, if this happens.

Take a look at this link regarding DRL system. I know it's not exact truck but most of it would apply to yours too. It should give you hints on what to test & how.

Sounds like its a problem with the light switch handle. Had it myself as well...
If you're savvy enough around car electronics take out the light switch handle, take it apart, find the problem and fix it. Inside the handle-switch you have several slide-switches and some double action slide switches.
Otherwise - get a different switch from a local junkyard or get a new one from your dealer.

If there is power there, then it has to be the bulbs. The trouble that most people have is, they don't see how both bulbs could burn out at once... and they're right. They don't. But you see vehicles with one headlight all the time. They don't know it unless you tell them or they happen to see it themselves. Then the second light burns out, and they think it's a major catastrophe, when in fact, it's just bulbs. The high beam still works because the bulb is double filament. The only other thing it can be is the dimmer switch, and since you switched it to high, it appears to be working. However, if it's not bulbs, it still could be the switch.
