Normally caused by faulty dimmer switch.
First double check the bulbs to be sure they are good then I would suspect the high/low beam switch or the headlight switch is at fault.
the high beam indicator is only on when the high beams are on
I dont know about the '99, but on my '95 the high beams are activated by pulling the turn indicator lever towards the driver. Pushing it forward turns them off again.
try checking ur high-bea fuses and relays
Hello, It sounds like you may need a new Indicator/turn signal Switch.
I like to switch around 200-300 feet away from them
Check the bulbs and then the multifunction switch (headlight switch)

Your headlights turn off when you turn the high beams on because you have a defective switch. You need to have a mechanic replace the high beams switch. It is a simple replacement.
If you are asking about the high beam headlights you either have burned out bulbs or the switch that turns the high beams on has failed. If you are asking about the high beam indicator on the dash I would also think it no longer works account it has failed.
Typically when a vehicles high beams fail to function, you will not see the high beam indicator illuminate on the dash either. When the combination switch is prompted by the user to activate the high beams it makes a ground connection on one of the relays terminals, closing the relay and the high beams turn on. The relay could potentially be bad, or the contact from the switch has been compromised by corrosion, or dirt. It is also possible that the contact point has bent far enough that it is unable to make contact with the relay from years of using the switch.
