Shuttle bus key switch to operate the bus door??
I am converting a shuttle bus into my skoolie.
Things are going great but Iím having trouble replacing the switch that operates the electric entry door.
There was a key switch located just outside the door that they must have broken the key off inside. (I had to cut the lock off with a sawzall because it was all nasty)
There are 3 wires that went to the switch. A red, blue, and black.
The black must be a common or something. When you tap the blue wire to it the door closes. When you tap the red to it, it opens.
Problem is that the ďopenĒ wire is only hot when the ignition is in the ďrunĒ or ďaccessoryĒ position.
Itís a pain to keep the key in the accessory postition to be able to open the door.
Trying to figure it out. Saw in one post that it might reverse the polarity and thats how the door is actuated.
Also....I canít find a key switch thatís for a 1 inch opening. Iíve googled and searched eBay. Just stuck.
