Have you checked to see of there is any kind of moisture near the wiring?

Sounds like your headlight switch is going out or a ground has come off or is loose.

There should be a wiring harness access behind the gauges. Just pull the panel back a bit and check it out. There might be a loose wire or fraid wire that's causing the problem. the reason I had said moisture is because that happened to my neighbor on his truck. But that's pretty rare so maybe the wire harness/loose wire deal is a better bet.

DO THIS^^^ And look for aftermarket gauges and headlights causing the loose ground wire.
