High / Low-beam issue

So I have looked around for a while on and off for the last few days and couldnt find an answer. My high beams are on instead of lowbeams when I turn my lights on. When I pull the multifunction switch back, my low beams work, but only when I hold it back. And when I flick the switch forward, still in high beams. I have replaced the headlight switch, the switch pigtail and the multifunction switch so far. And its on a 1988 lx 5.0. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Did this just start to happen recently? When you turn on the headlights does the high-beam indicator on the dash light up?

When you pull the MFS to flash-to-pass does the higb-beam indicator come on?

Have you done a wire tuck lately?
