E36 headlight switch turns on emergency flashers instead of headlights

I have a 1991 320i e36, I have fitted a new headlight switch and it now turns on the emergency flashers instead of the headlights. It works on the first notch for the park lights so I am at a total loss Can you please help?

Possible you installed the wrong switch or the switch was not faulty. It could be an issue with a short. I would get a repair manual and check the circuit. Confirm if the switch is sending the right voltage when the lights are turned on.
