Headlights not working on low beam....

When I turn the lights on everything works fine, dash tails etc... but the headlights do not. When I flash my highs they come on, and go off soon as I let go of the high beam stick.... any ideas? Thanks

Bad switch. If it makes you feel any better I put in a new switch and now my brights don't work.

yep straignt forward except for locating a good constant pwr.
you can do
1) tap into the existing engine main fuse block (near the master cylinder for the brakes - pry carefully there are 2 clips if you use that as is (no cutting) )
2) run a dedicated Pwr from the battery to the engine comptment - which is what i am planning after doing #1

the plugs match up so its pretty straight forward - mount the relays to something you either have or can Fab up and hand from the fender using existing holes (i used 2 2" brackets bolted together to make an upside down T
