Before, when I did this, the high beams would stay on after pressing it.

Now, it will just act as a "flash-to-pass" a la what happens when you pull the lever towards you.

So now, pulling and pushing the lever becomes "flash-to-pass". Not very convenient to hold the lever down if I want continuous high beams..

Has anyone ever experienced something like this?
Yes I have, when your toggle is on the "parking lights" position, the high beams only work as a "flash-to-pass".

Make sure your toggle is on the "full-on" position, and try to switch to high beams with the lever.

I hope that helps.
