Hello and thanks for using JustAnswer.I will try my best to help you with your question.
Have you tried the high beam switch on the steering column?
Do the lights turn off when the key is turned off?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Yes I have tried the high beam switch. Pulling and pushing the turn signal lever. Yes the lights turn off.
Expert:  A. Penland replied 2 years ago.
Just so I completely understand the problem. You high beam indicator does not turn off no matter what position the high beam switch is in?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Yes sir that is correct
Expert:  A. Penland replied 2 years ago.
I doubt it was something Firestone did as the struts are nowhere near the headlight or the wiring for them. But pull fuse #35 in the dash fuse box and see if the high beams turn off along with the indicator.
Please let me know what happens.

I assumed it was just dumb luck that it happened that way. I'm driving now once I get to the house I will pull it.
Expert:  A. Penland replied 2 years ago.
I think it is just coincidence that it happened right after they worked on it. Now, if it was a vibration or a rattling noise, or an alignment issue, then yes. But this, no.

I stoped at orielys and got a new switch, changed it out and all it right with the truck again. Thanks for your help.
