Head lights not working, 0.06 volts??

Hey guys

I got my truck out of the shop a few day ago and and discovered (at night) that my head lights are no longer working, every other light works fine.

i have HID kit and though maybe someone in the shop messed with them or something. they been working for the last two years without a problem.

First thing i checked was the voltage at the stock head light plug and it reads 0.06 volts.
Second thing was to check all fuses, they are all ok.

maybe a relay? but dont know were to look or test them

Yes you will have to remove the plastic trim of the dash. It should just pop off.

ok, i'll check the switch with a voltmeter and see if it's sending the 12v. Im thinking the switch only sends signal to a relay that powers the lights..
