OK, here's another one from "mister been fixing it back up lately". I hope y'all don't get tired of me.
Anyway, both high beams stopped working a few years ago. I just left it be, as I rarely ever use high beams anyway. Too much trouble flipping them on and off out on the road. When it first happened, I checked every fuse and relay, but all were good. I even ordered a wiring diagram, but couldn't track down the problem. Today, I went ahead and installed 2 new sealed beams, because one of the originals had become pretty dang dull. The new ones look super bright compared to the old ones, and I hoped that maybe by some miracle the high beams would work again, but they did not.
Anyone else ever seen this problem? I've been told by a couple shade tree types that it's probably a bad connection in the column switch. Also, according to the wiring diagram, the high beam indicator lamp in the cluster will not illuminate unless the high beam lamps are good... well, the indicator lamp does light up. I'm stumped.
