Front map light switch..available by itself?

I've come down with the same issue as some other owners. One map light will work when pressed by not when door opens. Upon inspection the terminal on one of the little switches was severely corroded. I haven't been able to get it clean enough to work right and no matter of fiddling with the lugs has helped so now i will by a new switch. Has anyone been able to source out just the switch or do you have to buy the whole housing like the parts diagram shows?

You pooped in the refrigerator... and you ate the whole wheel of cheese. Wow! really im not even angry thats amazing!!!

Re: Front map light switch..available by itself?

I'm thinking a junk yard might be your best bet. Although it might be worth sourcing the part at your local dealer. Won't hurt to compare price. Thus far, my local dealer has been able to come up with some obscure parts on the odd occasion that I need it.

Come to think of it, that might be a good way for me to put a homelink overhead console in my RTS. Hmmmm.

I have the same problem and just came from the dealer. They do not have just the switch available. Looking at the parts diagram, it appears you need to replace the whole base at about $50. However, I can't see the switches on the diagram of the base! You might have to replace the whole module at $400! Either way, once you order the part, it's yours. There is no returning electrical parts.
I think I'm going to be heading to the junkyard...

Lou100, good find.

Since I made my post above, I've discovered my local junkyards (at least the one I checked) has a $50 minimum charge. For $1.84 and shipping, that switch is definitely worth the price!

Yep. It just slides out. You may have to start it with a small screwdriver.

One push button light above dash only works when pushed but not when doors open
