    So the other night on the way home, I had the high beams on and a car was comin so I clicked em off...... but they didn't go off. Had to pull off and click the switch a couple times to get them to go off. Little farther down the road and a couple times since, I'd go to turn the highs on and they wouldn't stay on. Had a similar issue with the exploder I had, but had no headlights at all unless I held the switch in. Something else weird goin on is the low windshield wiper fluid light comes on every time I drive, but there is plenty of fluid and the plug is secure.

    Sounds like you need to replace the stalk. Have fun with that....

    As far as the washer fluid- you just need to clean the sensor.

    10-4 on the sensor. Is replacing the stalk really that bad. Had the column spared on the slpoder and it didn't look that bad. I know its a completely different vehicle.

    I've never done the stalk so I have no idea.
