Basicly lights operate from same source of power, so if you have high beems then power and ground should be intact. The operation of changing high to low is controlled by column switch,< blinker switch assembly >, and there slight possibility that both bulbs are actualy bad. To be on the safe side would check bulbs and wiring to them is in good shape before trying switch replacement.

Passenger side high beam malfunctions. low beam ok. high beam goes off. bulb new. where would short be.

The only thing I can think of is there is 2 possible causes for this problem.
1. There is a relay under the hood that activates the lights, check that.
2. There is possible a black box just under the dash to the right of the brake pedal and I believe its called the lighting control box or module.
I have replaced both many times, it generally leads to having to rewire the lights. Some times the light control module works and sometimes it doesn't, I have reported this some time ago, but they do nothing about it. Good Luck and hope this helps.

Check the high beam relay in the central Junction Box (Fuse box) under dash and check fuse F2.35, 20 amp yellow. One is bad.

Are the bulbs good?

If your low and high beams are on the same bulb, then the low beam elements have blown even though the high beam still works, you need two new bulbs.
