there was a very old post on this but here is the symptoms and how i fixed it.in case anyone has the same issue ever. i doubt it though.anyone ever hear of this?

low beams and windows didnt work at the same time.

i push up on the wiring harness going to the fuse box under the driver side dash and the lows and windows would work.

i would pull the headlight sw. all the way out and then hold the high beams on and the windows would work.

HOW I FIXED IT.

disconnect the neg cable from batt.

take apart the driver side of the dash.

7mm screw holding the harness plug to the fuse box.unplug it.all pins on the box look good and the wires look fine. no corrosion.

put di electric grease in each hole on the plug. plug it in.

problem solved. if anyone remembers my old posts.took me long enough i know.BUT I HAVE LIGHTS AND WINDOWS NOW. they are like a privilege to me now.

one of my posts from back in the day

Putting dielectric grease was a bad idea... you should have used a good quality contact cleaner

Dielectric grease is an insulator and doesn't conduct electricity, so if it isn't forced out of the connector when plugged in, it will actually cause a 'no connect' condition

It is supposed to be used as a waterproof lubricant in electrical connectors after they are mated to prevent corrosion from water

That sounds almost perverse. Razz Spray first with the cleaner then maybe use the dielectric grease. The only connections I've used them on are the lights all around. My right plate light had blown out and the left was just getting a touch black in the glass.
