Pickup switching fault???

Hi all, so after wasting the day trying to get round this i give up, I have a S470 which i was fitting IronGear volts (actives) in. Having fitted them then trying the guitar out, both pickups are engaged no matter where the 5 way selector switch is, even in the middle posstion (no middle pickup fitted tho)

Ive gone over and over every ground and wire to try and check for any faults, but cant find any, ive even removed the tone control (Pickup>5 way>volume>out jack) but the issue is still there. Ive had the 5 way switch out and on the multi meter checking for cross connections etc nothing!

So now im completely stumped, anybody any ideas?

Wired it by the stock schematic, then re wired it to irongears schematic, makes no difference, its not a groudning issue, ive been over and over every wire, i have ordered a 3 way switch to replace the 5 way so i can rule that out as im at a los of what else it could be.
