This can be a fault in the main cluster switch assembly as the headlight work from one relay set but is triggered for the flash with a separate switch and is also parallel to the main switch on from the cluster switch in forward mode.
So check the continuity when the switch is pushed up as this drives the relay to switch on the headlight

I would test the relay to make sure it is still good and everything there is working like it is supposed to. I would also look at the switch and make sure noting came unplugged and it is still in good working order sometimes new parts are still bad.

If your high beams are controlled by your blinker lever if you pull.the lever towards you it will flash the high beams on. If you push the lever towards the front of the vehicle(dashboard) it should stay forward. Click it back towards you it will.go back to normal lights

Pull your lever back if the high beams work that way you need a new high/low beam switch, if they do not you need to replace headlight bulbs.

It could be both lamps are burnt out.try replacing the lamps. Or checking the voltage at the lamp plugs. If the plugs have current with the light switch on. Then the lamps are bad.
