Try cleaning it. I was riding with MB8484 this past weekend and his got stuck. I think it was because of dirt, mud, sand, debris getting wedged behind the switch cover. I run a windshield which significantly helps keep crap out of the cab area, he doesn't, so it would make sense....

Mine had the same problem awhile back... Just clean it and sprayed WD 40 and have not had a problem since.

Hey Spudnuts, use Amsoil metal protector in the spray can, leaves no oily film to collect dirt and lubes well.

I used my air compressor with a blower attchament and blew air all around it.

I've had to blow out regular switches before also.
