Lights go off completely when swiching to high beam

Intermittantly when I switch from low to high beam the light go off completely. Sometime if I return to low beam they come back on, & sometimes I have to turn the lights off/on at the dash to get them back on.

I'm thinhking a relay problem. Anyone else got any idea's?

Thanks guys

Sounds like the main headlamp switch to me, a somewhat notorious issue with these cars.
