Issue with Door Unlock/Lock and Hazard Light Button

So tiday the hazard light and door lock/unlock button feature on the centre consule decides it doesn't want to work anymore. Both buttons do illuminate with the full lighting system however they no longer operate. I checked through the fuse panel and couldn't find one for either feature - am I missing something here? Anyone else have a problem with these switches?

If you pull the switch out you'll see that it's broken out the bottom. A lot of people have success gluing it back together, and if not, then you need a new switch.

Let me know if you have one lying around Renboy. Took a road trip this weekend so no time to tackle this repair.
