I have the round knob version, I dont remember the wiring but it is pretty simple and I think I have found the information on scoobymods forum, will look out for the link for you in a minute..

On mine you basically feed +12 and ground to the headlight, and then there are 6 control wires going to the switch to tell the headlight which position it needs to go.

The switch also receives +12 and ground. And it outputs 4 signals on 4 separate wires. Each of the 4 wires corresponds to a position of the switch; the selected position's wire will have 12V and all others will be off (like not connected).

The later switches designed for 06-07 STI had like 3 wires I believe: +12, ground, and a control signal that varied voltage to tell the motor where to go (ex: 12v position 1, 9v at position 2 etc). I just nade up these voltages by the way.
