High beams won't go off?

Ok so this isn't a huge problem but when ever I try to click from high beams to low beams the headlights dim for a split second but never switch from high beams I checked the fuses and all work any ideas?

It should be a single bulb that does the high beam/low beam so it could be the wrong bulb? Did it just start doing it or has it always been like that?

nope just started doing this on Saturday and judging from when it used to work correctly I don't think its one bulb that does both but I could be wrong

Yeah my rear sprocket broke on Saturday so it has been in the back of a friends truck since then but I don't see how that would keep my lights on.

try grounding out the contact coming off the bulb it's cheap and easy.

Ground wires are black because they're negative.
