Default 05 Forenza Headlights Doing STRANGE things

The daytime running lights (DRL) work most of the time. Sometimes out of no where my headlights or DRL will just shut off while driving. At night it's quite scary. My high beams don't work when i push the trigger forward, but they will come on while i pull and hold it towards myself. I have checked all the fuses inside the drivers side dash. I have checked all the fuses in the box under the hood next to the engine. I did notice the relays there and notice several with the same number on them. So i moved those around to see if maybe it was a relay issue, but not the culprit. I then replaced the actual switch on the steering column, but to no avail. I saw online that there is a recall for the 05 Forenza for headlight wires that needed to be spliced and soldered, but that period of the recall is over, and my car had already been serviced for the recall according to the VIN #. Any wiring diagrams would be appreciated, and any other ideas would also be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Called my nearest dealer which was 62.5 miles from the house. Told them about the issue and the recall and she said the recall was expired. But they went ahead and fixed it for FREE.... So while i was there i went ahead and got a new original cut key. total. $19.09. First time a suzuki dealship didn't give me a run around. PRICELESS....
