Default Centre console switch pack

Hi all,

I have new head scratching issue on my 97 XK8. A few weeks ago I noticed the centre console switches were not working (accept for the hazard lights) so that is headlight level, front and rear fogs, and traction control. First I checked that it was plugged in OK as I installed a new stereo a months ago, but it was connected correctly. Next I picked up a second hand switchpack on ebay (advertised as working), plugged that in but still the same issue. So I was wondering if anyone else has experienced this issue?? As I am unsure if both switchpacks are faulty, or if there is another problem some where else?

N.B. I also I tried disconnecting the battery, knowing that it fixes some issues on these cars, changed nothing with the centre console switches. But when I 'set' the window positions the (driver's side) window controls swapped over, so the RH switch operated passenger side and vice versa (it is a RHD car). I drove the car later and the windows operated correctly. Now am I losing my mind....

Andy *** had a similar issue caused by the security sounder popping fuse #3 in the Engine Compartment Fuse Box.
