I was driving home at night and had my lw beams on. When I pushed the stalk forward to put the high beams on, the lights just shut off completely?! Low beams work fine and if I pull the stalk back, the high beams work as long as I keep it held baCK. Whats going on here?

Probably a bad multifunction lever...or both your high beam elements blew at once. I think there might be a relay for the high beams on your truck...not sure where though. Could be bad. Good luck man!
