The switch is fully digital. When you turn the headlights on or press a function on the switch it sends a data command to the BCM which in turn carries out whatever function the driver wanted. All the lights themselves are switched on and off via relays inside the BCM. the connector for the light switch has only 3 active connections... 22 gauge power in, 22 gauge ground, and a 22 gauge data wire going to the bcm. the switch uses Pulse coded modulation.
