Emergency light and lock/unlock bottom not working

Hey guys,

So last night on the 401 drive home, it poured rain and everyone put on the emergency 4 way lights and pulled over... i did the same but my emergency light didnt work...

It didnt flash inside on the dashboard or outside. (My signals work perfectly though).

So today I checked the center console and all the windows and window locks work but the emergency light and the lock unlock doesnt work... just wondering if thats a fuse problem or what is it?

I cant find the fuse for it in the glove compartment though.
any help is greatly appreciated!

its a 2000 328i

check owners manual to determine which fuse it is. Find it and replace it if blown. They should be numbered to correspond with the manual.

^youre right, just took out the top of the switch and then pressed it, and they both work.

How much can you sell me that switch for shipped to London?

THanks!

My window up/down switch broke on my 2002 E46 325ci. Do you have just the plastic switch? The part you pull on?
It's part of this component 61316902183, #6 in the image


It's just the piece with the window image, not the whole module.

The back blows out of the central lock switch and it is easly repaired.
Please see my pics:
