    help needed with lights please

    my headlight switch has recently gone faulty. the headlights main beam is always on. i cant switch it off for love nor money. also none of the fogs etc come on. i ordered a new one off ebay. all looks the same. however ive plugged it all in. still the same.
    is there anything like a relay somewhere that could of blown when the switch went?

    Car Model, Original switch part number, replacement switch part number?
    Then can likely advise where to look.

    Sounds like the switch isn't the issue if it's still the same

    This video was crazy useful for me but guessing you don't need it

    I've checked the part numbers and they are the same. The lights come on as soon as you start the car. Also the high beam flasher only flashes, you can't keep it on.
    Is there anything else it could be before I buy a new control module?

    As requested - What is the part number of the original switch so I can determine if you are Hi-Line or Lo-Line circuit spec.
    This will reveal how the car is wired as there are a set of circuits for each.
    At least we have established the replacement switch is the same as the original.
