My suggestion:
Check relay under seat.
Ignition switch wiring plug/terminal
Remember lights loop thru the ignition on/run circuit

Fiddle with your start and reverse switches, both can stick and have cut out switches included that kill your headlights. My 02 start button had some crud build up and the lights didn't come on after starting. I sprayed the switch out with contact cleaner and worked it about 10 times with the cut off switch flipped to off and all returned to normal.
