Your best bet is to get a good quality switch contact cleaner to clean all the contacts on the speed control switches.
I guess the contacts inside the switches will have corroded slightly with your turntable having been stored in the garage.

Since there is no way for us to know if it has the original or an aftermarket phono cartridge on it, get the model of the cartridge from the cartridge body and look it up online (Google) using "stylus" as the keyword. These are usually user replaceable (just slide in).
If you need to replace the cartridge, find a good hi-fi jock or shop to do it for you. Some special tools, a steady light touch and good eyesight are necessary. Have him balance the tonearm for you, too.

Technics Preamps on eBay:
There are, of course, many non-Technics PHONO preamps out there.
If you already have the central receiver and amplification part nailed down you really only need a Phono Preamp to boost and shape the output of the Phono Cartridge. Otherwise you're paying for source switching, volume and tones controls you don't need.
