Have you tried moving the lever in the opposite direction? Some cars have the lever set so when someone is coming towards you with their high beams you can tap the lever in the direction you are moving it to flash the oncoming car to lower their high beams and the opposite direction puts them on high until you turn them off. Just a thought.
Move your car to a dark area, such as waiting until night or moving to a dark garage, to test your headlight switch.
2Turn on your car, so you can see your dashboard lights. Note whether some of your dashboard lights fail to illuminate.
Turn on your car's headlights. Note whether your car's headlights illuminate.
4Press the high beam lever to activate your high beams. Note whether your high beams activate.
5Put your car in "Park." Move to the back of the car. Note whether your parking lights are illuminated.
6View any remaining driving lights, such as lights above the license plate. Note whether these lights come on. If more than one set of lights does not activate when you turn on the lights, you may need to replace your headlight switch. If only one set of lights does not turn on, try replacing the lightbulbs in that set and then retesting your car. If the lights still do not illuminate, you may need to replace your headlight switch.
check fuse and relay, if its good, than you have faulty switch, only work on low but not high beam, to turn high beam on the switch move forward which is fauty or no contact, flashing high beam move toward you which has a good contact and working. it two switch in one unit.
Nope - it's the combination switch (the lever-switch on the column) that turns the lights on and off. They're notorious for failure. A new one for a slightly newer car (like my 99 A4) runs $158 at ECS Tuning. Yours will be priced in that neighborhood as well. Removal of the airbag and steering wheel is required for changing it out. You can see a procedure at www.audiworld.com - click on Resources, then Tech, and choose either interior or electrical tech articles - it's in one of those areas. It's not difficult but it can be unnerving if you're working with an airbag.
Sounds like a failure of the combination switch (the lever/stalk assembly with the headlight lever and turn lever on it). You have to remove the airbag and steering wheel to replace it. It's not a terribly difficult job, but you do have to take care with dealing with the airbag. You can buy the new switch assembly from www.ecstuning.com or www.purems.com for a little more than $150.
