My 2008 PT Cruiser and I say "thank you, thank you, thank you!"

I bypassed the defective sensor switch with a $6.69 water-proof momentary button switch I got from Amazon. (Ordered last night, delivered first thing this morning!)

The button went in the top of the 'cavity' and I didn't even have to remove the handle/switch mechanism. Drilling the hole took longer than everything else.

I cut the original wires/connector off with a razor blade scraper. Just strip the wires and connect them to the button and you are ready to go!

Works like a charm!
