    It started with the drivers side then while we were trying to figure it out the passenger went out now I have no headlights except the highbeams.
    any help appreciated, thanks

    I had a 150 older than yours, but maybe this applies. There is or was some type of fuse or relay in the switch on the dash. One light going out before the other would seem to point elsewhere, but I remember the high beams still working. The fix was to replace the switch. Good luck with it.

    Are these plow lights or the original truck lights ?

    Both so it has to be something with the wiring or the isolation module

    2008 was a bad year for light problems if you added a snow plow on the truck. When the snow plow was installed the Mfg. uses a harness that plugs into your existing headlamp harness to "jump" to the plow harness. The truck thinks theres and open circuit and cancels the power. Ford has to do an update on the computer to tell it its ok. The only reason I know is because i went through this.
