Actually after some experimenting, I found out what was going on. The car has daylight running lights, so at night you don't turn on the lights via the rotary dial. If you DO turn the dial to turn on the headlights, THEN the highbeam switch works as advertised. If it is in the "off" position it does not. Since the daylight running lights are as bright as "normal" headlights settings I never turned them on. Mystery solved. Though I think the highbeams should stay on with just running daylght lights. Who's wants to turn on the headlights via the rotary dial just to get the highbeams to stay on. > There should be a third setting, further to the right.

I also noticed this on >>a loaner 900 SE, I drove. Do both cars have bad switches or is this a >>"design" feature?
