2001 Sundancer 260DA "Incognito"

5.7L BIII
I have a 2001 260 DA. The port side tab does not work. The switch is the problem. Can I purchase somewhere the port side momentary switch only? I removed it and cleaned the contacts and it work a few days ago, but now it is not working again. It is a 6 pole switch, not like the newer ones with screws. It has a picture of the boat with little up and down arrows, and appears to have a breaker. I don't want to replace the whole switch, as each switch can be taken out. Thanks for your help
 
I suspect that SeaRay outsourced that switch, we have never made one with a picture of a boat on the switch.

Does it look like this?

This panel was made by a company called MG Electronics (I think) for Searay. You might want to contact SeaRay and see if they have a source or contact for a replacement.

Here is another made company called Carling, it's from their "Contura" line of switches.

Okay,

Try a s Google search or get in touch with SeaRay. If you need help wiring the replacement let me know.

I have removed this switch from my 240 SD to install the EIC switch along with the ATC. If you still need a switch PM m2.
