The Driver's side headlight is inconsistently working on my 2007 Exige. It either seems to work fine when I start the car and for the whole drive, or not work at all (no flickering). I've replaced the bulb, checked the wiring (what I could see from the wheel well) and checked the fuse, all seem good. One of the days that the light was working I shook around all the wires i could reach from the wheel well and the bulb remained consistently lit, so I'm pretty sure the wiring at least near the bulb is good.

Does this sound like a bad switch pack? Could a bad switch pack just affect the driver's side headlight some times, all other lights and electronics seem fine? Some days (or drives, some days the light would work for the drive to work, but not on the way back) the headlight works fine, some days doesn't work, really confused on this, any input is appreciated.

UPDATE:

I ordered a new switch pack and that fixed the Driver's Side Headlight issue. Buttttt now the parking lamp/interior light (upper light switch) automatically comes on when I turn the ignition on and I can't turn it off. The parking lights stay on when the car is running and I can't turn them off. When I turn the ignition off I can freely turn the parking ligths on/off, but with the ignition on, I can't turn them off!

Any ideas??? When I re-plugged in my old/original switch pack the parking lamp switch works correctly, so I'm thinking something with the new switch pack. The part # of the new switch pack starts with the letter "E" instead of "D" like the original, could that have something to do with it?

I talked to the tech at my local Lotus Dealer and apparently there is no easy fix to use the "E" labeled switch pack without disabiling the DRLs. So I decided to just unplug the green wire and everything seems to be working fine.
