Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

The high beams are supplied ground through the headlamp switch through the red/yellow wire in pin 12. If you're able to make them come on by grounding this wire at the switch then that rules out wiring and everything except for the switch and it's ground supply. If there is ground on the white/black wire in pin 9 then you can condemn the switch.

I hope that helps! My goal is your satisfaction today. If you feel I've been professional and helpful, your 5-star rating at this time is most appreciated. However, if you still need my help you can reply back here and I'll respond as soon as possible! Thank you!
