Brera - minor electrical gremlins?

Since I've had my 07 Brera (6 months) I've noticed that the glove box light is permanently on - day, night, driving or stationary. I can tell this as there's a slight gap in the trim between dash and top of glovebox.

When I remove key from ignition, it still remains on (I checked it up to 2 hours later).

I wouldn't imagine this is a deliberate feature and moreover, I wonder if there is some connection / wiring issue or otherwise... Am clutching at straws but wonder if this might also contribute to the issues I'm having with the headunit and CDC (loudlink) freezing sporadically at the moment (which requires a head unit restore each time).

Anyone else had this problem and if so, how did you resolve it.

Advice much appreciated.

not just a sticky / broken switch not being depressed when the door is shut ?

failing that, could you remove the bulb to break the circuit to at least stop it interfering with your other kit until you have a chance to get someone to look at it ?

I guess the glove box light turns on when you open the doors. Usually, the light after a long journey is hot, so I left my Brera locked for 5 hours and then checked it again, it was cold.
