Default T4 loss of power to KL15 connection

T4 2.5tdi year 2000

Seem to have lost power to my switched lives on the fusebox (KL15)
also lost power to reversing lights,
have fitted a jumper on the plug to the reversing light switch and lights still do not work,
have run a live direct from the battery to blue wire on back of switch and lights work.
I have power to fuse 14
are the KL15 connections fused?
Are the two faults connected?

In case it's of any interest to anyone in the future,
I have finally traced this problem.
It is down to a bad connection at the fuse (14)

Just for info I have a double USB socket wired into KL15 and after 3 weeks
around France powering sat nav and phone charging I think the power draw/heat has expanded the fuse connectors.

and...yes, reversing lights and KL15 switched live connectors are fed from fuse 14.
