no highbeams..... HELP!!!!

i just recently switched back to my silverstar ultras from my HID's, and i relized that the high beams are in-op, the bulbs work just fine, there is no power at the plug, and the indicator light doesn't come on, i checked all the fuses, adn couldn't find one for the high beams... am i missing something here?

Do your turn signals still work? Maybe that switch in the column?

Could be multi-function switch or your DRL Module. I blame the module. It's a common thing to break on Fords.

i have solved the problem, i searched on the interweb on problems like this, and turns out, when i was doing something else i pulled what i thought was an extra fuse to check something else, and never put it back in, so its working once again... its fuse #33 in the cab. it controls the DRL, and a could of other useless things... i guess it teaches me not to pull fuses, and not put them back... so thats my bad
