I can't figure out form your wording if they turn on when you pull back the stalk. Do they work if you pull back the switch and hold it?

If it's daytime the highs will only turn on when your pulling back the stalk... Just saying incase this is what your trying to do.

the MFS is known to fail on these cars. The highs wont stay on without holding it is the culprit a majority of the time. I replaced the MFS on both my Impalas

Hmm I learned something. Mine don't work without pulling back the stalk but I figured its b/c the daytime running lights were on. Made sense to me b/c the daytime running lights run off the highs and I figured the car was smart enough to know it was daylight and your trying to use highs... lol.

the highs only work with the headlights on, so no, they wouldnt work during the day. I have never owned a car that the highs worked independently of the lows. The lows had to be on for the highs to work.

The reason they "flash" when you pull the stalk back during the day is called "flash to pass"

Yeah... it is. It was 500 some odd bucks to have the dealer replace mine.

Yeah, I would have bought a part and fixed it myself, but by the time I knew what was wrong, I had no headlights at night (unless I pulled back on the high beams). I didn't want to be cruising around without exterior lighting.

That went bad on our old '99 Cavalier. I believe my friend at AutoZone got me the part for around $140, and I had a friend who works at a dealership install it off the clock. Only thing to be careful of is not to touch something you shouldn't and pop the airbag Shocked
