help headlight control switch not illuminating properly

hi

i am from the UK and wondering if you could help, i have a 2004 ford focus, the problem i have is the headlight control switch does not illuminate properly, part of the switch illuminates i.e when i put the fogs on the illumination on the switch lights up, but when i turn on my dipped beam the control switch does not illuminate this is the same when i turn the switch for the main beam also however what i have noticed is that for a split second it illuminates then goes off, i have also replaced the control switch i still have the same problem

any ideas out there as to what could be causing the problem?
