Bonnet open warning (not the switch!!)

Hello , If anyone has similar experience would you be so kind to share ...problem goes like this, on my 1997 phase 1 gtv TS, bonnet open warning on the dash works but not always..when you open the bonnet it will eventually appear but after few minutes, if the car is being driven for a while, allowed to warm up, it will come on immediately. Very strange problem. Tried testing the switch, continuity with a multimeter - found ok. On connecting the ground directly to the wire terminal that leads to the instrument panel, same thing..the warning appears but with a delay..anyone had this experience? Other items on instrument panel work normally without any glitches. I suspect something is wrong with the instrument panel internally.

When this happened to me I cleaned the contact points on both the striker and in the socket where it closes, (right hand side as you look at the car from the front), and has been fine since.
