You have to consider how old that switch is and how many cycles it has been through... it is bound to wear out.
24 years and 90,300 miles. I'd guess average trip about 10 miles- maybe 9,000
The switch should be brand new then. Only one problem is known widely with MB ignition keys: Driving around with a pound a of extra keys hanging down from the ignition key destroys key and tumbler.
Thanks Roland - I sure missed your response. I am keeping the old switch, just in case. Your point about the heavy bundle of keys is well taken. I use just a single key.
Until a couple of years ago I had two original keys with the original black leather wrappers and one was accidentally dumped (not by me. Grrrrr!!) and one I have mislaid. I had two copies made and I am using those at present.
