Default Headlights stopped working

Help! Suddenly my headlights stopped working on my 1986 ford f-150. The parking and taillights work fine but not headlights. I know the dimmer switch is bad so my son went to get one. Where is the headlight relay?

Should be in or by one of the fuse boxes, maybe under dash.

Not trying to be stupid about this, but have you checked the headlights themselves? I had an 88 Cutlass Supreme that blew both headlights at the exact same time. Kinda rare for both headlights to go at the same time, but it can happen.

Dew there is no room for us Ford owners here for any kind of logic. LOL! But seriously, check if you have high or low or neither.
