Headlights on a 1985 300zx

I just bought a 1985 300zx, and I love it. But I did have a question about the headlights. This is probably a stupid question but here it goes. When the headlight controls are in the normal position, aka towards me. and i turn the control all the way so the lights pop up, the lights don't actually turn on. Then when I push the control stick forward the lights come on, but the brights indicator is also on, so I'm assuming I'm driving with my brights on. what am I doing wrong? or is it a mechanical issue?

probably got a bad stalk switch. common problem withz31

watch and understand. if you are not savvy with electrical stuff you got a problem

yes you are on your brights. before you get too carried away you might just jump twelve volts to the headlights to be sure the low beams aren't just burnt out
