2003 LS dimmer switch on multifunction went bad

I have looked into this multifunction switch and apparently the 2003 had at least 2 different switches for moisture sensing wipers. I will get the steering wheel off in a few days and check the number on the actual component.
Meantime I have only low beams.
The problem might be the FEM but I'm hoping it's just the dimmer,and flash to pass part of the multifunction switch. I'll post back in a few days I hope. don-ohio :)^)

Took off the steering wheel, clockspring and multifunction switch and ordered an exact replacement of the switch, USED, on E-bay for 60+ dollars. It's not that hard to replace, and since I'm not 100% that the switch is bad, I'm going the cheap route.
Should arrive Tuesday, and I'll give it a whirl.
The switch on my 03 unclips from the clockspring holder. 2 screws and 2 clips. Hope it solves the problem, cause the FEM might be a hard thing to obtain and get put in right. don-ohio :)^)

Yay! The MULTIFUNCTION switch AKA turn signal switch did the trick! Got her all back together today and she's working perfect. don-ohio
