So I had a mil light for a while and assumed it was the glow plug circuit again. And then I was losing power steering fluid too. Bought a hydroboost and it?s been sitting in the shop for 6 months as I haven?t had time to get to it with all the work on the casita.

So I dropped it at a buddies house who?s a mechanic for Fed Ex and he?s the only guy more anal than me. He found it was the hose and not the hydroboost. Then he found the boot from the air intake pipe to intake horn was deteriorating along with the air filter and a few fuel hoses.

Pulled codes and found the pressure regulator was stuck wide open. Now I know why it was running a bit rough and lopey. Got that replaced and the hoses and new filter.  The silicone boot I ordered was the wrong size so back to the drawing board there.

Also tested the fog lamp switch and found it to be bad but it?s discontinued.  The LBZ switch is available but with a different harness and the plug is $125 from the dealer in addition to the $75 switch. Uh no. Not even for the guy who is so anal

Will figure something else out.

A lot of times those switches on the left side just need re soldered.   You could crack it open and look at the circuit card.  Might be a free fix

What am I looking at Ken?  Is that the switch for the 2006 and a matching pig tail?

Yeah
.. problem is, I think all the wires are white.... typical Delco.....so I looked for a connector wire code in Mitchell and couldn't find it.

I have the factory shop manuals. The switch only completes the ground to the bcm to so I suspect it?s not that complicated

I have had success in using mouser to find the pins and connectors.  It?s hard because their interface is complicated but you can find most anything.  When I did all the wiring for the add ons for my lml I found all the factory stuff which kept splices to near zero
