    Default Unfortunately....

    This has become a good or replace country. I remember when you could buy the part to fix such things. Now they sell only the whole control unit. Unless you are adventurous and open it up yourself. The one I looked up for a 2010 RT is $304.00... and yours only has one thing wrong with it...:banghead

    Warranty maybe The switches on RH should be easier than the complicated assortment on the LH so a tech might be able to fix or clean.

    ok open her up 4 screws on back.... then 5 screw inside one th the outer ... pull out.... pull off cruise control .. the 3 screws hold on the red kill ... mind here as it has 2 chrome small balls on either end of the rocker.... under it is a rubber molding with 2 bits that stick up... under is a sealed switch .. the ball bearing push down on the rubber mold and the activate the switch .... one side looks a bit swashed ( the one that activate the on or start ) so i turn them round .. having a better chance to keep the switch engaged ( as the of rubber one is never to less likely to be in position ... there for not compressing ( shortening over time ) .. over time the rubber gets compressed and loses its ability to keep the switch in the go position.... think this will happen to all of them as it a design fault .... took me 30 mins to sort it .. works just fine now ... hope this helps us save a few $$$$$$$$$$$$$$

    Isn't it great when you can answer your own question and teach the rest of us something besides? Thanks for your follow up.

    Great... like the adventureous types and DIY folks that can find solutions. I have fixed many over my lifetime in the motorcycle industry and having spent many of those years in places that have no way to get new parts easily or much less affordable one learns to rig up some other way. Next step would have been pull the wires and hook up an alternative switch much like I did with the lights on my RS....20160322_083746.jpg Well done... you did save big bucks....
