bad wire bad switch or bad connector is the only thing it can be. Does the headlight circut use a relay. Many newer cars do the switch only carrys a 12v source to switch the relay for high low and both which is what you should get if you pull the switch backwards.

BigEsGarage Dose this have Day Time Running Lights?
If not.
The only thing in the circuit that I can find, that would match your description of the problem, is the control circuit to the headlamp relay from the head lamp switch. The combination switch has two parts
1-headlamp control, 2-dimmer function. When you flash you H-beams the HL-relay is energized momentarily. When you turn the headlamps on it's energized until you turn them off.
Confirm the HD-relay is commanded on during both selections. There is a splice in the harness making the connection for the two functions to energize the relay independently.
Good luck, Cheers
