headlights dont work need help

I recently bought an 03 f250 amd my headlights dont work. Only way theyll work is when I hold the highbeams back and dont let go. Have had the fuse checked on it before and nothing, not sure if its electrical or wiring or whatever. Would really appreciate some help thanks guys

My headlights went out also. I found 2 bad pins in the top connector into the multi funtion switch. I moved my steering wheel up and down and my lites would come back on, sometimes.

Do your parking lights work?

I would remove the head light switch and verify you are getting voltage at the headlight terminal on the back side of the switch. If you have power there you will need to follow the circuit until you find the faulty component. Being you said you can move the steering wheel up and down and the lights worked at on time I would suspect you have a damaged wire in the steering column. I would remove the covers for the steering column and double check the wires there too.
