Re: [T3] High beam problem...

Glad to hear it.  The headlight relay is a change-over one that gets a pulse to
change it when you pull the switch lever.  Probably there is a poor connection
in the circuit somewhere - maybe just a bit of oxidation that could have
dispersed with some current flowing.  If you changed the relay for a good new
one, it does sound more like wiring or the switch contacts than the relay.
Sometimes after a long period of inactivity, my joints get a bit intermittent
too.  ;-)
