Unforntunatly sounds like dodgy wiring. And that means a case of tracing back through wires and finding the issue. Can be simple sumtimes others can take a while to find

That tells me they wired the illumination light ino the wire for the lights on the electric window switch or they used the earth for the electric window as the illumination wire is very sensitive to voltage change or at least prosport ones are as i found on mine. lol
