The high beams "work" in autolamp mode. Pressing (and holding) forward on the turn signal lever turns the high beams on. But as soon as I stop pressing forward (ie. releasing the lever), the high beams go off (so it's in "flash-to-pass" mode).

But before the service, doing this same action, the high beams would remain on. To turn the high beams off I would push the lever forward again then release (I call this toggling - you don't need to keep holding something to keep the effect, it just toggles on and off based on further pressing/de-pressing).
