Thanks Paul. I will give that a try this week and get back.

Hi JJ, see if there is power actually getting to the switch? I'm out on a limb here for actual removal procedure, but once you've got the switch out, check to see if there's power on the appropriate wire/s. I haven't got my Bentley to hand so I can't give you a wire colour, but maybe someone else can afford that info. Could be Yellow, Black/Yellow, Violet, I don't know, but if you find a suitable ground, just check them all. One other thing, buzz out the ground wire (earth) to the cars' chassis. This wire I would expect to be either Brown or Black. Bad earth means no power! Once verified, use that wire as your ground point to test for +12V. Just a few pointers, let us know how you get on?
