When i turn on my headlights with the multifunction switch

Customer Question

when i turn on my headlights with the multifunction switch there are no dim lights with a buzzing sound only when car is running
I can switch to high beams and they work but no dims
I have checked all fuses and headlight bulbs and wiring seems okay
2002 kia rio wagon kept in garage all the time
Could this be the multifunction switch but the buzzing is coming from the firewall??

We need to do some wire testing. Do you own a test light or volt meter and can you work from wire diagrams?

Below is the wire diagram.

I forgot to ask if you have daytime running lights. Lets rule out the combination switch. With the headlights on the green/red and blue/black wires should be power. Low beams on the red wire should be powered not the blue/white. High beams or flash to pass should be the opposite of the last test. Let me know these results.
