well if you've done anything around the steering column i would check for a loose connector, if you are lying in your floor board and you look at the steering column there are 3 bolts that attach the column itself, there are connectors lying around there, and one of them goes to your highbeams, just something to rule out i guess

there should be a switch (i think it's called a dimmer switch or something like that) in the underside of the steering column that gets actuated by a rod when you pull the multifunction lever to turn on the high beams. i replaced one years ago. i can't tell you exactly where it is or what it looks like, as i don't remember. i can tell you it's cheap to replace, though.

easiest thing would be to go to a small service garage that does NOT charge to look at problems and see what you need.

^ yep, you need a new switch. mine is the same way right now. it pulls back but has no click.
