Not a big issue on this, just want to make sure it remains a small problem. The high beam lever on the steering column works fine when you push it forward as it's supposed to, but when you pull it back toward you for just a quick flash of high beams it no longer works. It used to, it stopped one day, I always have oncoming vehicles flash at me, I guess my headlights are bright and they think I have my hi-beams on, I have had my lights checked and adjusted twice and I still get flashed at night. I used to pull the lever towards me to show them "these are my high beams" but it stopped working... Like I said, not a major issue but would like to know why it stopped and how to fix it.. Anyone else with a 1997 C-280 have this problem? Thanks.
