Go to a good parts store-tell them what you're looking for-tell them to let you loose in the hose isle. Look around-some part number might have the bend you need.

Hey folks,

I'm gearing up for my roof raise and need to learn how to disable and remove the rear door latch sensor so that I can start her up w/o it being connected. I've looked and looked and can't find a reference. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Thanks in advance!

Does it have two wires or four?

I believe this makes it a two wire unit. Here's what it looks like:



Now, after I removed the cover to take this pic the bus won't turn over. Normally she starts up immediately, every time, now nothing.

Try screwing it back down and see if it starts.

Do you mean the whole unit back to the wall or the switch inside the unit?

I think the switch just needs to be pressed in a contact mode. Have someone hold the button in and try to start it, if it starts, then all you have to do for the short term is bypass that switch.

If that is the case then you cut the wire before and after the switch and mend them so it completes the circuit.

Complete the circuit and you can start the bus.

That metal casing, housing the switch, is no longer grounded to the body of the bus. That's why the switch doesn't work anymore. Either touch the metal housing to the bus body or screw it back in place so you can start your bus again.

I'm not an expert of those safety switches on doors. I follow the sound to where the noise is and disassemble until it stops. On mine that allowed it to start again and got rid of the buzzer.

Thanks guys,

The housing was screwed back into place so there is contact being made so it can't be that simple, unfortunately. Also, there is no tell-tale buzzing or alarming at the switch, or anywhere else for that matter, so the issue must be elsewhere.

Thing is, I haven't moved it or done anything to it since the last time I started her a week ago, she normally starts right up, and now nothing. Just a dead ignition.

I leave early tomorrow for a ten day business trip so it will have to wait. Can anyone think of anything obvious I may have missed or should look for? Like I said, she's been a 100% solid starter since I got her late last year and now zippo.

Thanks again to all!
