[DML] Re: high beam / low beam behavior

Depending on what you mean, it's probably normal. You may need to 
have a helper work the switch while you stand up front and watch. 

The outer bulbs have two filaments, a low and a high. The inners only 
have one, high. 

When you pull the switch toward you (flash to pass) both high beams 
come on but the lows stay on. When you push the switch, the inner 
high beams come on, AND the second element in the outer bulbs come on 
but the first element in the outer bulbs turn off. 

If the outer bulbs go completely dark when you turn on the high beams 
(i.e. push the switch) they are either both burned out on the high 
filament or you have a wiring problem.

toward me to "flick" the high beams on momentarily, then yes, the 
high beams shine while the low beams are on, too (i.e. all four 
headlights).  However, if I push the wand away from me to turn the 
high beams on indefinitely, then the low beams shut off, leaving only 
the high beams shining.
