What switch options are required for the OP's vehicle?

According to the Airtex web catalog the correct P/N for with Fog Lights and without Auto On/Off is P/N 1S1816. The Airtex web site has the correct image.

This is that part on Rock Auto site.

Is one recommended over the others? I see there are 3 different brands that will work. My original question was meant as which one of the three options on rockauto is the best choice?

If it were me, then I would disassemble the original switch to ID and hopefully repair the problem. I have generally been successful in other ZJ module repairs I've attempted. These are a combination of SMT and through hole technology.

If that were impossible, then I would purchase a used switch off of eBay.

A new Rock Auto switch should work fine and includes a warranty. The Airtex I linked is a reputable company. On many parts like this my preference is to start at the highest cost, like the Airtex.

I tried my local junkyard and since I was in a major city on the weekend I checked there too...no dice. Might have to order a new one and be done with it.

I ended up ordering one off eBay. It came today and I'm hoping to get it installed this evening.

Headlamp switch didn't fix the issue. Ended up buying a kit of mini fuses and changing a bunch of them and now it works. All the fuses I replaced looked fine and I tried a different fuse before I even ordered the headlamp switch. WTF?

Put the old headlamp switch back in and it works fine. Going to return the part I didn't actually need. I think I will also change out all the fuses since I have a whole pack of assorted mini fuses
