for your problem as a temporary fix if you do alot of city driving unplug the low beam wires and plug your high beam wires into the low beam buld i had to do this on my camaro but if your like me and dont venture into the city leave it untill you can get er fixed.Never had this prob on my 97 so not sure how the switch is set up but im guessing the lever is broke at the end and not ''switiching' or the arm has come unhooked
