Thanks to the two people that replied with really good suggestions.
I did some hunting around, checking wires, grounds, etc. Someone had
suggested I pull all the fuses, one at a time and see if the problem goes
away, I did that, no leads. Then I took my volt metre and check for
coninuity from ground to all the fuses. Only one showed a connection,
obviously a short of some kind. Looked it up, it was the fuse for the
exterior lighting, dash lights, and stereo. :) did some more snooping around
and found that if I pulled the head light knob all the way out, and then
back in ever so slowly, about 1/4 inch, everything works fine! :)
Took the light switch out and noticed that some of the tabs holding the
wires into the connector are broken off (thanks previous owner) so the wires
aren't seating properly. The switch is all rusty and the spring for the
dimmer is broken. So, we're going to install a new headlight switch and a
new connector (dealership purchase, no junk yard crap) and everything should
work after that.
Thanks again to all who helped
