XF no high beam

Hi There,

Got an old xf ute which its lights are playing up.

when you turn them on, they only go to parkers.
then when you flick to high beams they move to low beams.

Therefore you can't get you high beam to work

The high beams work when you pull the stick towards you to flash someone.

Anyone got any Ideas.

THere ended up being some shit on the contacts of the stick. All fixed and didn't cost a cent.
