Dash, plate and running lights don't work with headlights on?!

Have 97 F-350 CCLB. Just got it recently. When I turn my headlights on the running lights dash lights and tag lights turn off. Any ideas on what it could be? Much appreciated if anyone can help.

But they come on when you pull the knob to the first position, for the parking lights? Then it's most likely the switch.

Don't be fooled if the parking lights come on in some "in-between" bosition, between the click stops. That's just one circuit back-feeding into another, energizing the park/dash/plate lights. If that's what's happening, then check the parking light fuse (I forget the number; it's in the owner's manual and on the inside of the cover if you can read microscopic zero-point font size printing).

Yeah everything works fine when I have it in the parking light position. As soon as I click it over to headlights everything else clicks off.

Sounds like the switch or the connector to it.

Replaced the switch and nothing changed. All fuses are good. Any other ideas?
