Since you have checked the bulbs and they are good you will need to see if you have a signal from the high beam stalk on the steering column when you activate the high beams , the way you do this is remove one of the headlight connectors and check power at the connector there while someone activated the high beam switch if you see a power signal there then its a internal headlight harness issue but more then likely you will need a new stalk on the steering column that activates the high beams. I hope this helps .

Please dont forget to provide feedback/rating for the help provided thank you
