Headlight problem?

My headlights work fine but when you put the high beams on the lights go out, so no low beam or high beam? It was like this when I bought it, just getting around to sorting out some of the gremlins. Anyone have an idea on what may be causing this?

Cheers

Sounds like the multifunction switch gave up... Your dimmer switch...

Thanks, I'll look into that, I hope it's in the dash not the turn signal arm or column

Multifunction switch IS also the turn signal switch.
