Sorry to sound like I may be taking the mickey but have you tried another switch that you know is working? I did on mine and it worked fine afterwards.

DLM has written it all down. He's busy moving house this week but a PM will doubtless elicit the gen you need.

PM back to you, sleepy.

For general information, you fit a one-touch on the driver's side too and connect it up to the passenger side with 5-way cable. Haven't done it yet, but the details are saved on one of the BX Yahoo groups, if you fancy signing up for it, though it's written with so many legal caveats it's damn near to a contract in form. I hacked it about a bit to make it more straightforward for a BX-knowledgeable person.
