Check your fuses, though it would be quite odd for all of them to go at once. Test your light switch on the dash, and check your grounds also. GOOD LUCK!!!

I really think you need to test your switch. Have you done any work to it lately that a ground would have come loose, or been broken?

I had a similar problem, turned out to be both a bad fuse and bad headlight switch

headlight switch costs 14 bucks new from advanced, so I would suggest changing it regardless cuz I know alot of guys who have seen more than a couple go bad in the life of their trucks

Did you check the fuses under hood at the Power Distribution box? Also, are your back-up lights out?
