If you can’t get it to work correctly with cleaning and new lubricant, then you could rig up another switch, but this switch opens one circuit and closes another circuit when it’s operated. In other words, when it’s in the out position, there’s power from the reverse actuator position switch that routes through it for starting the engine and the other half of the switch is open and not sending power to the cruise/reverse control module. When you push it in, the starter circuit power gets opened/removed and the reverse module is then powered, triggering it to engage reverse. This is the diagram for the 01-05 models, but the 06-17 is wired the same with possible wire color changes.Sounds like an ongoing problem. Can I bypass. the existing switch and wiring and install external switch.? Reverse is working but ya gotta hold he switch in. Not seeing a lot of positive feedback on repairs of the original switch.
