Thanks for posting
Are both high and low beams out on both sides, does the high beam work when pulling up on the switch?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Both high and low out. Switch on column clicks but switching to high beams does nothing
Expert:  Ted Ritter replied 2 years ago.
Ok, it sounds like it may be the switch it either has no power going to it or it's bad, let me see if I can dig up a wiring diagram and get back to you, do you have a 12 volt test light available?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Yes I have voltage meter. Could it be the relay?
Expert:  Ted Ritter replied 2 years ago.
It could be, do you have another one to try, there should be one in the fuse box that is the same. I'm not sure until I look at a wiring diagram.
