    I’m trying to find an oem switch which will fit the only open slot on the bottom left hand driver side bank of switches. The open spot is right next to the rear window and 110 V power switch. The dealer has ordered two different switches which do not fit and they really have no idea what size it is. I know, this is strange. Does anyone have the correct part number? This switch will be used to power a light bar.
    I can go the aftermarket switch route but I get a little concerned when people are posting pictures of their burned up switches made in China. Thanks for your help!

    Most of the time, the switch isn't really to blame. Most switches are designed to only carry a specific amount of current (usually about 3 to 5 amps). So, depending on "what" you are switching, maybe you should use a relay?
