Blinker Vs: High Beam?

I noticed recently, the when I am driving with my high beams on, the left front turn signal works as it should, but when I turn on the right front turn signal, the headlights go out, I need to quickly turn off high beams to get head lights on again, while my right turn signal is on! what gives?

Could be the switch in the blinker arm going bad.

Replacing the blinker arm required if switch is bad? I assumed it would be a wiring issue up front!

Well high beams are actually controlled by BCM. You could try removing connectors on BCM and reconnecting to see if it helps.
