Transbrake Question

New Toy.
Ok here goes I riped the wire from the back of the transbrake button on the steering wheel during loading "Not good" and was trying to see if the button can be removed from the harness for replacement?
I belive it is a B&M 46003 after looking on the net.

If that is the switch that I'm thinking it is, the back side of the button is a molded piece...probably not much you could do to it other than rig it...

Those buttons are really better suited for a line-lock or spray anyway...
You would be better off with a good adjustable micro-switch...IMHO.

Button

Ok I called B&M and they said there wire is only 2 wires and mine has 3 wires. I belive it was being used for a line lockk and retard button inconjunction with the MSD Ign.
Any Ideas who made it?

Richard, simply replace the button with one that can be incorporated into your steering wheel that has momentary function. Two terminals are all that's required on the switch.

Switch

The switch controals the line lock and the Ign retard in the MSD, not sure just how it is wired but it seems that they will need eather power or ground to each to complete the circute from the 3rd wire.

Dedenbear makes a 3-wire stretch cord...you just add your own button.
