If you pull carefully and hold the high beam lever on the steering column
combination swith towards you ( the driver )slowly , and the headlights
switch to low beams while you hold the lever at that position , and when you
release it (the lever) the lights go back to high beam, you have a broken
spring inside the combination switch. The easiest solution is to replace the
combination switch.
If that is the case send me a message and I will provide some advice on how
to go about replacing it. It is not difficult at all !
