    96 pete 378 with 3406e.

    So my jake braje toggle switch is going bad. Been looking for a replacement but cant find one. I guess my question is if i can just use a 2 blade standard switch as long as the anp rating is right?

    My stock one has only 2 blades coming off of it but with a plug thar plugs into it. Im assuming its just an on/off switch that applies power.

    You may be able to use a generic switch, but the exact switches on eBay are cheap. Just google what you need with eBay and you will find it. 362CD298-5E67-468D-A840-51930A0CD52F.png

    It's the switch on the left that has gone bad.

    I have a on/off switch and a 3 stage jake brake switch.

    The on/off switch is whats going bad

    Easy fix. eBay usually has it to you in a couple days.
