Derek, that sounds like a headlight switch problem rather than the harness.
 After I relayed V8#1, we experienced several times the loss of dims when
switching from hi to low.  I eliminated that by replacing the one wire
where the connector plastic had melted prior to relaying and replacing the
connector housing itself.  I think when the plastic melted, it got into the
metal connector.  I'd tried cleaning/wire brushing that, but it didn't
solve the problem.  Replacing the wire did.
