Talking high beam headlights

The highbeam headlights on our '01 S80 will only work when you pull back and hold the turn signal arm, instead of clicking on-and then clicking them back off. I am "presuming" that the entire turn signal arm will need to be replaced.....OR....is there a separate switch for the high beam lights that I need to replace? Also...best place to find either part??? (please don't say "dealer"....ours is trying to retire off of us--haha!)

As always, your input is greatly appreciated!! Thanks!!

Make sure the headlight switch is turned all the way to the right. If not turn it to the right and try again. The Highbeams will not stay on in the day time running lights position.

Yeah I had the same problem once. I even called the dealer and they told me that I had my car in the running lights position. I felt so stupid after that, but don't feel bad, it will happen to all of us sooner or later.
