....else the GROUND is clobbered up with corrosion...you might take the black 1/0 cable from where it attaches to the ground.....wirebrush the lug...wirebrush the chassis for FULL grounding potential to all devices....including the ECU~

Judge Roy is right on again. My question to you, did you use the correct replacement? If you have a timer delay, it may take a different switch. Always clean the connections before putting in new replacement parts, especially electrical. The older ones develop electrical corrosion around the connectors over time and a lot of times, cleaning of the existing parts is all that is needed to do fix and/or repairs. 000 emery paper and a good electrical cleaner such as as-atone spray will work clean the connections.
