Headlight Troubles

Hello everyone. I have an 07, f-250 with headlight issues. The headlights will not always turn on. At first they would turn on after a few minutes of leaving the switch on, now they don't turn on at all. I have checked fuses and bulbs, all good. All other lights turn on and function properly when headlight switch is turned on. If I switch to high beams, those function properly.

Thank you all for your time and knowledge.

UPDATE---

I have since replaced the headlight switch and the multifunction switch and the low beams still won't turn on.

Any input would be greatly appreciated.

It may be a headlight relay. I'd check under hood fuse box and see if there are any relays in there that may have gone bad either the contacts or the coil. I maybe sending you on a wild goose chase but may be worth looking for relays

Is there a way to test the relay?

If you can determine what two terminals are the coil and what two are the normally open contacts. Apply 12VDC to the coil terminals and check for continuity with a ohm meter. Not for sure if there would be a diagram on the relay or not. If not you should have a resistance reading across two terminals and the other two would be open. Like I said not really even sure that there is a headlight relay but I'm thinking there should be especially with auto on lights.
