DSC button WTB

Wanted to buy DSC button/ panel. I am located in Australia so I would have to pay into your paypal account. To suit E39 series. Have tried ebay but all have heated seats or PCD buttons as well and I don't know if they will work if I don't have these features.

A little history first, I don't know if the button works or not. The traction control light works when you give the car a bit of stick but I cant seem to turn it off with the button at all. Tried holding it down for 30 seconds plus but won't light up.

Suppose it's better than the light being lit up all the time. But I would like to have a little fun now and then.

Thanks in advance

If the button won't light up its probably not that panel that houses the buttons. Does the DSC button feel like all the others when depressed? (Spring feeling)
