Question about 1997 GMC Savana
I had this same problem. A mechanic said it wasn't the switch, but that I needed to replace all kinds of other stuff. I pulled the switch out and discovered that it had literally disintegrated on the inside, and was shorting out the battery (not saving it). I'm referring to the "switch" under the hood, not the push-button on the dash.
You can bypass it by joining the two power connectors together, and ignoring ALL the other wires. I simply used a nut & bolt to join the wires, as it would've required replacing a fusible link to replace the entire cable. I then insulated the connection, to keep it from touching any body ground locations.
