My problem is when I turn on the headlights, the parking lights comes but not the headlights, but when I hold the turn signal switch / highbeam to the rear the driving lights comes on but I will have to hold it in place to rear without clicking over to the highbeams for the lights to stay on.

Plus a friend of mine pushed down a little on the 4-way flasher switch on the top of the steering column, and it went away if he held
