Highbeam problem

When I push the stalk to engage the high beams, they flash on and then go back to low beams in the forward position with the blue high beam light on.

When I pull the stalk and hold it, same thing- they flash on for a split second and then go back to low beams.

Has anyone had this happen before? Looking for a quick fix to avoid a trip to the dealer.

Thanks

Pulling the stalk will always just flash it (I think). There's probably a short to ground somewhere in the highbeam wire and the Canbus is shutting down that circuit.

If you pull the stalk and hold it, they will stay on until you release it.
