Default headlights wont come on

Kind of a long story. It started in the below 20 degree weather. I have auto lights and they wouldnt come on when I turned the key. I would shut it of and restart a couple of times and the would be fine. then the next winter I had to hit a few bumps and the would come on now nothing. Ive got all lights but the heads. I looked at a diagram and it starts at the bjb with a 30 amp fuse Ive looked no luck looking for sugestions thanks

Two different places to look would be the headlamp relay (located in auxiliary relay box 3 which you should be able to find within the owner's manual) and the switch itself. Look for loose connections first since you say that a few bumps made it work to some degree in the past.
