Customer Question
I have a 2012...

I have a 2012 Tucson, and the door side switch keeps the red dash light on; I bought the new switch, part # 93560 3L000, and it looks like an easy fix; any tricks to the installation?

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the fuses? The dashboard bulbs?

Yes. I've slammed the door with the seat belt in it many times, and now the light doesn't go off even if manually depressed.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Tucson yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes. I took the screw out to look at the switch; not much wire slack, so i have some channel locks to hold in place. Just thought i'd check before i pull the old one off. Looks like it should just snap on.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

. The dash light drains the battery after 2 days on, so I must drive it every day.

Hello my name is ***** ***** welcome to just answers! I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is the system prompting you, not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required. If I don’t answer right away or quickly in conversation I am helping another customer or have stepped out for a moment and will respond as soon as I can. Ok lets get started!

So the switch should just be able to replaced no problem, if you loose the connector worst case is you will have to pop off the trim behind and push it back though to connect again
