It's most likely a fault with the instrument cluster caused by condensation. If I understand correctly all the actual lights are doing what they should. The cluster gets info from the lights (indirectly), and that data should be Ok. My guess is a short or bridged connection on the cluster itself caused by condensation. Have a diagnostic run on it just to confirm there are no error codes.
I am actually having the same issue. I find that jiggling the light wand and pulling it away from the steering wheel will give me more consistent results. Not to say this is a permanent solution, but at least you can drive at night.
If your Highbeam Switch is on your streering colum (turn signal lever) Thats where I would start too look! It could be the wires to the highbeam switch. I had that happen on my ford. But if the highbeam switch is on the floor, check for a bad circut connection and if that checks ok it might be your main headlight switch! Even though you may not loose your highbeams, your main headlight power still runs through that highbeam switch, and being on the colum thats why the would start to function when you move the shifter.
There is A Steal ROD that runs along the Collum from Actual Multi. Sw. Lever down to Dimmer Switch I Cannot Send Pics through FixYa but can Email them aol.com My Knickname in front w/@ of coars hope this helps Pics will Help More
Disconnect battery ground cable.
Remove left lower instrument panel cover, then tape dimmer switch rod to steering column to prevent rod from falling out of notch in actuator lever.
Remove switch to column attaching screws.
Disconnect switch electrical connector, then remove switch from steering column.
Reverse procedure to install. During installation, gently push up on switch to take up slack on rod.
I have a 1997 Mazda 626 and my headlights go out for no reason. My highbeams seem fine so if I have to drive at night I have to drive around holding my highbeams on. Nobody can figure out the problem. I really need help on this. I need to drive my car at night and can't.
