Yet, Another 308 Headlight Issue

HELLO,

I HAVE A 1981 308 GTSi AND HERES THE ISSUE.

THE HEADLIGHTS RAISE NO PROBLEM BUT, THEN DO NOT SHINE AT ALL IN THE UP POSITION. THEN JUST WHEN THEY GO DOWN THEY COME ON. AND THEY STAY ON UNTIL THEY ARE TURNED OFF BUT, THEY SHINE IN THE DOWN POSITION. IF I APPLY BACKWARDS PRESSURE TO THE OPERATING ARM ON THE STEERING COLUME WHILE THE LIGHTS ARE IN THE UP POSITION THEY COME ON. I WAS GOING TO HAVE THE LIGHTS WIRED DIRECT TO AN OUT BOARD SWITCH AND RAISE THEM AS NORMAL AND TURN THM ON/OFF VIA THE SWITCH. ANY SUGGESTIONS?

Sounds as if there may be a short in the steering column lever assembly. You might also want to check the relay.
