Lighting Problem

Ok, this weekend i went on a road trip to my sister's place and then to my parents (about 17 total hours of driving)

Accouple of times after stopping for gas or food, i turn my truck on and turn my lights on and the lights dont work...then maybe after 10-15 mins of driving they come on...This sucks, specially since i did some night traveling, i almost had to stay at a rest stop cause my lights wouldnt come on...

This is what DIDNT WORK:
corner lights
parking lights
tail lights
dash lights

bright lights
turn signals
brake lights
hazard lights

so im thinking its a relay, is there anyway to be certain? i have my owners manual sitting in my apartment about 1k miles away, so can anyone help me locate the correct relay in a 01 2.3 ranger?

Thanks for the help

Everything listed that was giving you trouble runs from the solid brown wire directly from the headlight switch - no relay. The fuse for this circuit is #33 in the underhood box. The only connector that affects everything listed is C205 at the headlight switch.

The headlights themselves were not affected because they are on three other circuits. All of the other items that were working are on different circuits, too.
