Wow, i guess they weren't good friends to begin with

Before you undo everything, have you checked if the current goes all the way to the lights?

Nope. What happened was, I was driving down the highway, then hit a big ass bump and the headlights/tach light went out. The tach is spliced into the headlight wire. The fuse is fine, the connection to the battery is fine, the switch looked busted, but it tested fine, the new switch didnt help. the brights work, so I know its not the bulbs, its definitely the wiring somewhere. brb Ill post a pic of the old switch, the wires look burnt up and corroded.

Here is the switch...cant really see the corrosion, but you can tell it burnt up because the yellow boot things have turned black closest to the exposed wire. and the casing was busted...but it worked on the volt meter thing.

Aw man, we had a great match here, Lucas-Andrade, nothing huge like american matches, but it was action packed! I think it also played live on espn.

Take out the headlamps, install some huge rectangular high intensity fog lights.

Blind the fuck out of everyone on the road.
