Good answer, and precisely what I told the OP on his other thread. That's the first place to look.

I also struggled with that quite a bit, I think loosening the ball joint might have provided more play and made things easier.

Just to confirm, when you say "with the car on", it has to be engine running, and parking brake off - did you do that?

Well that rules out the resistor, since it's not even getting power. Let's start from the supply end then - are you getting 12V at the DRL NO. 2 fuse output, red wire with white stripe?

You might want to check that the DRL load resistor has not burned out. I think if it was burned out (open circuit to ground), you would not have DRL's but will still have high beams.
