2000 MADP - Spartan w/Cummins

Suddenly, yesterday, the headlights won't come on and the dash indicator tells me the bright lights are on. No amount of movement of the stalk changes that.
Because of that, I can't use the fog/driving lights either. The turning signals and emergency flasher also stopped working.
I checked the fuses, removed the relays and moved them around. Now, I have turning signals, but still no headlights.
I do have marker lights.
My first thought is to find new relays and replace all of those in that box. There are 7, I believe.

On our 04 Essex when we lost the headlights the problem end up with the control box for the controls on the steering wheel. The black box was in the outside cabinet under drivers seat. The chassis is a Spartan and the control box cost around 500$. Not saying this is what your problem is but might check the connections to the smart wheel control box.

That's kind of what i suspect. If the headligjts are off hand the wipers are off, i have emergency flashers and turning signals.
If I turn the wipers on, I don't. If I turn the headlights on, I don't, but I don't have headlights either.
How large is that box and what does it look like?
