Overhead console electronics malfunctioning

Squad, my overhead console, since the day I got it has been malfunctioning. I haven't opened it up to see exactly what's wrong, previous owner tried I guess because the headliner isn't stuck on.The passenger side light never turns off and turning on the driver one on sometimes makes the rear lights turn on. I can push on the console and the driver light will turn on with the pressure. Its wacky. Anyone experience something like this?

In the case it comes to replacing the whole thing, does this part include the electrical components inside? Part number: 5G086883782V

It's easy to take that apart, pop off the microphone looking area and there are a couple screws. See if you can get the passenger switch unstuck and check the dome light switch wiring. I think the part you linked is just the plastic but I could be wrong.
