    Hey all--

    Problem...only one: in turn indicator mode, the "left" switch postion
    functions but the "right" yields a rapid flashing of the dash light,
    indicating a fault (usually a burnt bulb; this time it is indicating the
    rear turn signal lamp is not on)--bulb is fine; I have to apply a little
    pressure to the wand to get the flasher to slow down and the tail light
    to work. Clearly, a boo-boo with a switch contact.

    SO--anyone here had to do an R&R on this big, expensive switch-?

    Does this problem sound familiar-?

    Is it practical to disassemble the switch to repair-?

    Money is tight; I'd love to fix this if possible without the purchase of
    that gigantic switch assembly. (I noted with disappointment that the
    existing stock switch bears the LUCAS trademark--the same guys who
    supplied the awful components on my old British motorcycles).

    Any help is appreciated--thanx--BuZzY

    Inflation...the MOPAR dealer sez: $95.00; NAPA version is $77.00--not as bad as I thought. There goes my beer money.

    I'm happy to say that the switch now functions after I removed it and
    used some electrical contact cleaner and a little white grease on the
    appropriate contact, accessible from the back. Seems to work fine.

    We'll see.
