Does the flash to pass option turn on hi beams?

No
Ford Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 8 months ago

This would mean the geen/black wire that goes from dimmer switch to fuse box is broken somewhere. Verify wire leaving dimmer switch has good power and wire going to fuse box doensn't if so you will need to follow wire to find damage or splice in a new wire between the two points. Let me know if you have questions. Here is a wiring diagram. https://www.dropbox.com/s/s77gww4ew04b9tq/hl.pdf?dl=0

Dan, this is in regard to the 2002 Ford Econoline Van E 350, with no high beam lights. I Have checked everything and it has voltage from the light switch to the control on the steering wheel and down to the fuse. The indicator. for high beam is not working.
Ford Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 8 months ago

You checked the green/black wire leaving switch for power and verified the green/black wire going to fuse box has power with hi beams on?

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.
