You have to (obviously) open it up and solder in a new one. I've done it, but it's not trivial. I have lots of experience soldering and it went well, but I would not anticipate that someone without lots of time spent with a soldering iron will be able to do it without burning or lifting traces off the circuit board. The switch is available from many places. I bought mine here:

How to replace oil pressure switch 1999 pontiac bonneville

it is a long sensor with a special fitting, you can get the oil sending unit socket at your local parts store that attaches to a ratchet, it is a little tricky to reach, you have to try different size extensions to get the best reach.
it just turns counter clockwise to remove and clockwise to tighten.

The power windows has no power but if i jump the power from battery it works whats wrong

There's more than one reason. The time out relay can be timied out all the time ( do the interior lights work correctly?) The main wire from the relay to the window switch is broke ( mosly in the driver door hinge area where the wire flexes inside the rubber tube) Pop the driver switch out of the driver door and test it for power Key on two wires hot key off one wire hot ( display lights in the switch) if the wire is cold find out where it's broke at or the circuit breaker is blown or the main fuse link that powers the circuit beaker is bad burnt or blown. To cheak theres a fuse box on the drivers side under the hood. Don't just open the little door take that whole cover out of there so you can see all the relays and all the fuses. Test lights (
seee) the power and looking at them is a waste of time. once power is all the way to the switch and the window doesn't work and the window will work putting power right on the wires to the motor then you know the switch is bad ask both the dealer and the parts stores for this switch as the cheapest one will work just as well and the dealer might be the low price ( ask them for a discount) they don't let you bring back electrical parts so find the wires good first before you go and buy somrthing. Pros will fit it and not guess wrong ( hopefully)

I need a new on/off rocker switch for my Tefal FR4016. Does anyone know where I can buy one please? I know how to fit it and what the cables are, I just need to locate a new switch. Thanks

Worst product I ever bought switch broke within 1 week, used twice and Teefal/Currys were about as helpful as an unhelpful thing.

Anyhow got a switch from from CPC PN: SW02922 Desc: Switch, rocker, spst, red, 250VAC £1.20 each.

Fitted works like a dream and seems a lot sturdier than the cheap one supplied with the unit.

Hope this helps others. Never buy another Teefal product!

I broke the power switch on the motherboard of my DS lite when changing the shell. Can that piece be ordered?

Yes, ebay do them very cheap, I just hope you have good soldering skills as you need a steady hand and a good eye to do it. (I know ive fitted enough of them).

If you have any problems with fitting a new switch message me and I will do my best to help you.

Power Switch for this PC?

I've read your question & am still confused about which switch you need. I'm guessing that it's the power switch on your case that is broke? If so you can go to just about any auto parts store & buy a push-button two wire off/on switch. Even in a Low's store. It may or may not fit just perfactly on your case but it's better then turning the power off with a pen directly off the motherboard. Been down the road your on. It's either this or buy another case. You will not find your case a new switch. You can use your case's wiring connector to plug into the board listed on pg. 1-18 in your manual. It's two pins. You can splice the two pin connector from your case to a new switch's wires. As far as connectors go. You can buy a small pack of single connectors for a computer from radio shack to connect to the boards (power) ATX power switch. All the parts shouldn't cost you more than $10.00. Cheeper than a new case!
