What cmd and what user do you use to switch init levels?
You need to be root and use either

init 3

or

telinit 3

to go to level3.

Seems like there may be a mixup of exactly what the OP is trying to do here.

Switching RUNLEVEL and switching Virtual Terminals is different.

To change runlevel, log into a console as root, and use init x where x is a number 1,2,3,4,5,6.

To change Virtual Terminal, it is usually CTRL-ALT-Fn where n is 1,2,3,4,5,6,7

Does this help?
