sunnyboy Thanks Rob. Sounds like the ideal fix. I sent a PM with my address. Please let me know the cost so I can cover it.

Yes, I have had 2 fail. In a very weird coincidence, I was in Warren PA both times.

Just replace it with a SPDT toggle switch. No big deal. You'll get about 1-2 years out of a switch when used on a bike due to exposure to weather and such.

enumclaw I bought a few much higher quality switches (it wasn't hard) from Digikey a couple years ago. PM me your address and I'll send you one, gratis, if you'd like. The replacements are a direct fit, connection points and all, but much more robust.

Chewy I just replaced the rocker switch on my Symtec for about $5.00 plus shipping from amotostuff. The switch is poorly designed and does not drain water if it's installed in the horizontal position. It lasted about 5 years.
