Thank-you for the information
43sqd, I most certainly appreciate and thank you for the information you've given. I'm definitely not entitled to it, just forgot to say so in my quick reply.
I checked the voltage across the fuse contacts and pretty much got a full 12V. Next I took the switch apart and tested the #1 blue wire against the car frame as well as using the #8 brown wire as the ground and both readings were at 12V as well.
DrX, thanks....yeah you're right; I just had the dealer diagnose and then replaced the switch myself. When it didn't work, I took the switch back to the dealer. Thankfully it hasn't cost anything except the diagnosis. Unfortunately I can't take it back to the dealer right now, because he is in MO and I'm in FL. Originally he said they weren't receiving a signal from the switch, and that I'd need to replace the whole combination switch. I looked at the parts diagram and then unfastened the CC switch from the combi switch and then told them it was seperate. The parts guy then told me "oh, well it looks like there is some confusion about it in our notes." I have nothing against the dealership, but I am just not close to there right now.
