    Have you tested the wiring for voltage & checked wiring back.

    Well checking the wiring with a meter would be a 1st, then remove trim & check behind, its probably something simple, couple of screws & about 8 spring clips holds it on iirc, slowly prise it of so as to not break the plastic fixings for the spring clips.
