s.w.a.g.: Maybe a contact in the ign switch itself?

Also, I don't know where the headlight fuse is but, if it's in a fuse block, check for loose fuse contacts and fuses. How's the wires attached to the fuse blocks? Coulda shook something there.....

Sounds like where ever the fuse for the headlight was you jiggled something the right way at or near it.... If the fuse you removed and replaced was in the fuse box the light issues could have been there...tryremoving and inspecting checking and cleaning all connections and fuses?? Withign on jiggle each fuse and see if you can get the lights tomalfunction....???? Did you check the fuses to see if any were blown??
