bad headlight switch? maybe the little metal piece that contacts the round part of the switch is bent so it only contacts it when it is turned all the way towards the interior light part. take it out and look at it, it is a fairly simple mechanisim.

I had this same type of problem. I think I may have posted it some time ago. But anyway, our switch was brand new and would not work. I ordered another from another company and replaced it and it has worked fine.

Good advice from Jason. Glad to see you got it fixed.
