My headlight switch is broken, help

My stupid button is ****ed. Something happened and now it works in two stages, sortt of. It's like I have to play with it to get my dash lights and my headlight on at onece. And like 15 minutes into driving it starts flashing between the two and then shuts off. If i leave only one of them on it doesn't do it. Also, vibrations seem to have nothing to do with it. I had to drive home without dash lights, and consequently my tail lights. HELP!!!

take it apart, see if any of the wire connections are loose in the harness.

Dude mine does the exact same thing.

I have to get it in the right spot for my dash lights to work when the headlights are turned on..

ohh, Brent. When you replace the switch. Don't pull on it hard. It'll come off in your hand. Took me forever to try and get it back on.
