You would probably need to read a schematic to troubleshoot. The electrical components in our cars are not the best. I had to replace mine when the fog lights stayed on and killed my battery. You can buy from Advanced Auto Parts. Try this link for a discount, if it doesn't work I can email you one.....

you might want to be careful with tho's after market parts, especially electronic components. Our PT's don't like them.

I read somewhere that the one Advance Auto sells is the same part number as MOPAR. The post had a side by side pic

edit: It was Auto Zone not Advance Auto. Here's the linky: http://www.srtforums.com/forums/f123...r-part-559953/

That's only true of sensors. I got a MF switch from RockAuto on my daughter's GT - it's been fine.

ok thanx for the clarity. I knew that was true for the sensors but wasn't to sure about the mf switch. I was hoping someone would come in and correct me.

ok people heres the scoop.i replaced the multi switch an it worked .i got it from auto zone and it an original part.then after i replaced the switch ,i opened th bad one ,i thaught it was going to be full of relays,diodes and other stuff ,but all it is ,is a curcuit board and sliding contacts.on mine one of the contacts seems to have over heated and got stuck on the spring.so i got it loose and now it spring like it should .iwill be testing it next sat (my only day off) and let you know if it works
