Default '00 Silverado - Low beams work great, DRLs work great, High beams don't work.

I was driving the Silverado last night and tried to turn the high beams on and they went out completely. Flipped the switch again and low beams came back on. Is there a fuse that could've popped? It's a 3/4 ton and a plow truck with a Hiniker straight blade.

would have to agree the combo switch is a common failure you can normally tell it doesn't feel right when they fail some vehicles do have a fuse but most are just relay's
