70 views and no luck ...bummer i never have easy issues lol
i tapped the correct wire just makes me wonder now if i did lose connection and the only connection is to my new switch.. strange part is when i did the install they both worked fine.Without looking at the thread, you might want to check where you spliced the wires for the new switch into the existing wiring. Make sure you didn't cut a wire that wasn't supposed to be cut. You might have intended to "tap" the wire, but it might have severed it instead.
What type car do you have? Keyless ignition? If so, then you might have a problem with the antenna that senses the fob.
ya i might try a diff type of tap .. not sure how to Ohm the switchI'll have to look at the diagram when I get home tonight, but I can't think of why it would do that unless the tap was damaging the wire. It might do that if it's the wrong size tap for the wire.
It might be worth ohming out the switch and making sure it's NO (Normally open) and not staying closed.
