I had a problem with my light switch. Head light /xenon sometimes didn'r work or simplt did switch off while driving.... Switch is 95 quids from OPC !!!! did find a diy threadfor cleaning the switch on the net. (6speedonline). Took me 30mns and some electrical cleaning spray. My lights are working properly now !!!!! I will put the link when I have a mo. 8)
 
I was told mine was broken when I went in for a service, I told them I was surprised as it had always worked for me, I didn't authorise them to change it and its never ever failed to work.

Very odd................
 
Mine started from time to time. At the end didn't work at all. Seems to be a common fault on 996. Those switch get dirty inside and need cleaning.
 
Common issue, mine need doing as I have had a couple of 'reminders' at speed about it too. Just need to find a suitable cleaner....
 
The light switch in my car has been replaced in the last 2 years: seems like a common issue.
