No Headlights, No Cruise??

Just wanted a few suggestions on what you all think. I haven't gotten a chance to look into it yet. Possibly just a blown fuse, any info is appreciated?
Sorry One edit. I have headlights, but no High Beams, and I don't think they are burnt out either, I'm thinking it might also be the turn signal multi switch thing (thats a technical term, LOL)

I think it might be the loose nut behind the wheel. Just playin. I think you might be on the right track with the turn signal multi switch thing or maybe the clock spring. Does the horn still work?

99% sure it is the multifunction switch, You can tear into it with a DVOM to be sure but it is most likely the culprit. They usually run about $50

Thanks for the help lilred, I did check the muffler bearing oil, it was o.k., not 100% sure but I think the horn still works.
Thanks fordnut, thats kinda what I thought. I have to hold it now to get the turn signal to stay on.
Whats your take on the cruise not working?

Serious this time.
You might have a problem with the clock spring. Have you checked the fuses?? I'm sure you have just checking.

I haven't even looked at it yet. I will tomorrow, I have the day off. I plan on checking all the fuses, and clock spring??? Never heard of it. I'll bite, where is it located, and how do you check it?

HAHAHAHA I swear its a real thing. It is in the steering wheel and it connects all the electrical connections so that wires are'nt turning back and forth getting twisted. Im not surer how to check it maybe someone else will be along to help out with that. But if the horn is working then it just might be a blown fuse since the horn works on the same clock spring.

If it's not the fuse, It is most likely the MF switch.
