I just started having this problem on my 08 after it had sat waiting for the airbag recall. I noticed it was "sticking" and needed to tapped. I bought a new switch and hope it's fairly easy and straight forward.I have done a search and it seems like I can find everything but what I need. For several months my dash lights would dim out during the day and I learned that by tapping the headlight switch they would come back on. No biggie. Today I went out to leave and turned the key and nothing happened. I was getting kind of the dead battery type twitter noise and I noticed the tach needle jumping a bit. I was just getting ready to jump it when I hit the light nob and then it started. When I got to where I was going I shut it down and tried it again, with no problems, then when I went to come home same thing. Except this time I started with the switch and discovered that unless the dash lights come on when I turn the key, it won't start. I hope this makes sense.
Thanx in advance.
