Headlights won’t dim or shut off occasionally

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the fuses? Have you checked the bulbs?

Yes

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Chevy?

2014 Silverado

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Silverado yourself? What have you tried so far?

I just got it started. The headlights stayed on and drained the battery. Earlier they wouldn’t dim. They are off now, truck is running

At the multifunction switch when the headlights will not dim verify that the white and yellow/brown wire are not grounded when ohm testing in low beam setting. If they are not grounded then the switch is not bad.

When the headlights will not turn off, unplug the headlight switch. If the lights remain on then its not the switch.

If these tests pass then the body control module is faulty and to blame.

Now that I have posted a partial or complete answer, you will see you can rate me. The deposit you have already paid is not transferred to me until you rate me. I would like to receive nothing less than 5-star excellent ratings. So if we are not there yet, please reply and let me help more. If you're not pleased, let me know because rating bad does not result in a refund, there are better options. Rating now will not close this post nor prevent replying. Thanks Chris
