Unhappy Help Please (Electrical)

I have a 1995 M3, for some reason when I have my lights on and when I turn my left turing signal my high beams turn on.
Does anyone know what can be the problem?

Sounds like a problem with the Switch.

Yes, your wires in your switch are probably just crossed. Shouldn't be a big deal to fix at all. My moms van has a similar fun problem, the cruise ctrl is integrated in the wiper and turn signal stalk, and when the c/c is activated, turning on the left blinker (but not the right one) cancels the c/c. Of course, the rear lights are so fcuked up its not even funny, but that's beside the point...lol.
Taking off your switch, you should be able to fix them real quick. Just tape over the parts that have most likely became exposed.
