Headlights do't work.. Brights do!

Hey folks!

As the title suggests, the headlights on my 97 won't come on but the brights work like they're supposed to. Thoughts? Thanks!

Most likely, if it's not a fuse, the switch has a burned contact.

Could be the dash switch, or the MFS, which has pull-to-pass highbeams.

Try another bulb? Doubtful both went at the same but, just a thought!
