Can I test the lid switch ?
Expert:  Bryan replied 5 years ago.
actually yes with a volt meter . put your volt meter on continuity and unplug the switch. test for continuity with the lid shut, if you get continuity then the switch is good, if so come back and we can look for other causes. thanks, Bryan
