Before I take the unit apart to check the connections, is there a common problem with the Flash-to-Pass feature not working?

Not heard of it before, but there's not much to go wrong.  Before you wade in,  I assume the main beam is actually working?  Just asking the idiot question because I've made the idiot mistake twice this week so far.  If you unplug the cluster at the first plug, check for continuity across the brown (number 12 pin) and red/black (pin 7) when the button is pressed.  If nothing then you need to open up the switch.  If you have continuity you need to check that you're getting 12v on the blue/black wire and that the blue/white wire has continuity from the plug to the RH headlight.

Fixed it. The connections behind the button were dirty and after cleaning them it works now!
