09 Ranger Sport, low beams on push

Well, now here is a kicker.
The head lights on my, new to me, 09 Ranger sport are working backwards. Push for low and pull for high beams. I don't get any high beam indicator in the dash.
Anybody know from easiest to hardest mod to check where to track this fault down. I do plan on added lights but I want the stock system working right first.
Thanks
James

It should be pull to flicker the high beams and push to leave them on. If i remember right, if your lights are not on then the hi beam indicator does not come on.

Edit: your from Canada so DRL's should do what I described.

The only thing I can think of is you are pulling the round cylinder that turns on the lights/cluster lamps and not using the turn signal stock.

Push to turn on high beams, pull to mid position for low beams and pull up from mid position to flash headlights, the so called visible horn

That's the way it is supposed to work I know. The damn things are backwards. Flash to pass doesn't work as well. If I had the wire diagram for the 09 I could trace it. The head lights work, just not as designed.

I am wondering if two wires are installed backwards. Please let us know what you find out.

No warranty. I don't think the stalk is in backwards, the pull to flash moves toward the driver just no flash of highs.
Anybody got a wiring diagram? Could shorted DRL in the driving lights cause this?
