Headlight issues

Hey guys. I just had to replace my batteries and now I have no headlights. I had no headlight issues prior to the batteries dying. There is power at the fuses but not at the light sockets. The switch gets hot and it is clicking. When it clicks the red wire with a yellow stripe gets power, but only with the click. I'm assuming the switch is bad but thought I would see if anyone had any input. Thanks in advance.

Re: Headlight issues

I've attached a gif of the headlamp wiring diagram and the main light switch tests. It's probably the main switch, but you can't rule out the multifunction switch either. Cheers!
