you can use an ohm meter to check the switch, also check to make sure all of the wires going to and from the switch have a good connection

  If you know which relay is for the headlights you can have someone else turn on and off the headlights while you listen for the relay to click. If the relay is clicking then try swapping it with another relay and then see if the lights work. If they still don't work then check for battery voltage at the relay terminals in the box. One of those terminals should be hot all the time. If no voltage then possibly a bad fusible link in the same box. It may look like a little plug in box with a fuse type strip inside or a wire type.

  If no relay is clicking while switching the headlights on and off. then the problem may be in the switch or wiring to the switch. If you have to get into the wiring a schematic may be needed to get you through.

  Hope this helps.  :beerchug:

Should be 0 (zero).  :yesnod: Switches are not supposed to have resistance. If they have resistance they get hot and no workie!  :smack: Then you could have a fire.  :shudder:

what you are checking for with an ohm meter is little to no resistance, and checking to see if there is continuity in the switch, if your meter says OL when you should have continuity your switch is probably bad.

Before you go pulling it apart, are the headlights burned out? Do you have power at the plug? Could just be a bad ground. High beams work? I know there is something else that if it is disconnected the headlights won't come on but I can't think of it right now.

Do you know what it looks like. I don't have a picture to show you. Maybe someone can post one or you can look in your repair manual. I have had two toys with your issue and it ended up being the fusible link.
