High Beam light on all the time.

Hello.
Newbie here in this great forum.
I have a problem with my 94 Ranger 3.0 litre, 2w drive .
The high beam simbol on the dash stays on all the time even when the engine is turned off,and the keys are out of the ignition.
Any ideas as to cause of this prob.?
Is this light on slowly draining the battery?
Thanks in advance.

Wiggle the switch arm to see if you can make it go off. Sounds a little like the cluster assembly switch, but not exactly. So do the wiggle test.

Yes it is equipped with daytime running lights. Also when I pull the switch and turn the headlights on, the high beam symbol disapears ,it comes back when I turn the switch off. Could it be the headlight switch?. If it is the switch how do I replace it?

I haven't changed the switch in too long, so I hesitate to answer. Just look around the left side, the left/right turn signal lever. You'll be able to figure it out. I think all you need is a screw driver,, no security torx screws present.
