My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question had not received a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

Check to see if the plug is worn needing to be replaced as well as any components in the way keeping it from installing all of the ways.These are the most common causes.If this is or was checked and found o.k. let me know here so we can continue.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service, your 5-star rating is appreciated ( should be a link to click on here or above).You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.I work on delivering the best answer and help here but in some cases, it can be difficult to do without seeing the vehicle.

Thanks Pete

Technician: Pete, Automotive Mechanic replied 6 months ago

I apologize for the delay.

Unfortunately, my info is limited to this model here so I don't have the info you need on this.Let me open your question up to others here to see if anyone else can assist further on this.

I will open your question up for others here to see if someone else can assist further on this as there may be others here that may have more info on what to check or do with this issue.I hope you can get this resolved with ease.No need to reply to my last post here unless it is a last resort as it will keep your question locked to me and others will not be able to view it.If you feel you want to continue to work with me on this feel free to reply at any time but keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair this without seeing your vehicle.

Thanks Pete

Hi Tom, My name is***** will be glad to help. If the connector is worn out and terminals fit loose ether replace the plug and terminals or first using a mini screwdriver or o ring pick try to bend the terminals slightly so they will fit snug once again. Careful not to go too much. The only way to help access the switch is by removing the mounting bulkhead nut and the dash panel access screws for better access and pulling the switch out of the dash completely to work on it. Unfortunately it is a bit tight on these. I had a customer with a small fleet of these. Let me know if you need more help. We can follow up as needed.

Please take a moment to rate as that is how the site credits mytime helping on the site or let me know if you need more help. 5 starand bonuses are always greatly appreciated.
