Question about Sony Audio Players & Recorders
This is an electret condenser microphone which isn't a standalone self-energising device and needs a small amount of power and a couple of other components to produce a working device.
It is possible the Sony microphone might have some, all or none of those built into the package and this will have to be investigated.
The power requirement is typically 2 - 3 volts.

if you have a volt meter check the supply is working correctly
48v dc phantom power should be found between these pins on any xlr mic cable.
pin 1 and pin 2
also between pin1 and pin 3
make sure you have amps turned down before checking/switching 48v phantom power
as if all is up and running it can cause big noise in the speakers.
let me know how it goes

I'm not sure if it can be. Lots of these newer connectors are sold as , you know, only complete and you splice it in. Is it bad on the switch side or the body harness side of the connector? Heck, if it's just to the back-up bulbs, you could connect the two wires together outside of the connector, and bypass the connector problem on that one wire. That would be the easiest fix, as long as the other pin connections are good
Now on the older removeable spade type connectors, you slip a fine wire or needle along the top of the metal pin to push down a little tang, and then the wire and pin will pull out from back of the plastic connector.
Well, good luck, Bill.
