If memory serves the pass light switch works independently from the headlight, as it will work with the headlights in the off position. The problem is probably in the dash switch. A volt meter and wiring diagram will be make the troubleshooting simple.

The dash switch was ok. I did pull the multi switch and checked it and that was the problem. You are right the pass light is separate. Thanks anyway.
