Question head lights not coming on in cold weather

I believe its related to the colder weather that moved in this last week but I noticed that on 3 seperate occassions in the last week that when my car has been sitting overnight or all day that when I start it up and turn on the headlights/foglights lights that they don't turn on. The dash lights light up, I believe the parking lights turn on but not the headlights or foglights. I hear the relay make the typical pop noise but nothing. I turn the switch back all the way off and back on again and they come on fine. One time I just tapped the stalk forward to flash the high beams and they came on then. Also, I disabled the DRL by unplugging the harness behind the glovebox, but its been unplugged for about 3 months now so I believe that isn't the root of the problem.

Anyone else have this happen to them? Since it just started happening when its been noticably colder I can only assume thats the cause but was curious if anyone else has had this happen and if so did they end up getting it fixed.

This is on an 02 WRX Wagon btw.

Thanks for any info,

Sounds like it could be the headlight switch. If tapping on the stalk or flashing high beams turns them on. Them i would suspect a connection in the stalk.
