Got her up and runing again, and a question.

Got the Ranger up and running again. Turned out I hadn't tightened the clamps enough to give it a strong connection. Stupidest, simplest fix.

So my question is this, the other week my keyfob broke. No big deal, as soon as money allows, I'll get it replaced. So I was messing with the truck tonight and discovered my driver door rocker switch to the door locks doesn't unlock them. Question is, how much of a PITA is it to switch it and how much am I looking to spend? Second question, is it worth fixing since I use the keyfob 99% of the time anyway?

Before replacing the switch, try removing and reinstalling the connector. That will sometimes make a better connection. A little dielectric grease on the pins wouldn't hurt either. Use care when removing the connector because it is easy to break the lock clips.

To access the back of the switch, remove the small switch subpanel that holds it. It is retained by a screw or two and some clips. Pictures here.
