Passenger door pin switch

Hi All,
First post. Has anyone had luck with an alternative to the passenger door courtesy light pin switch? It was missing on my 95 Wrangler so I ordered one and it fell apart just sliding the wire into the terminal. After looking at the ratings of others selling this same / similar switch, they are all junk.
Thanks, Robert

I would get an OEM switch from a junkyard, does not have to be from a jeep. Or, just put a manual switch

I gave up on plastic switches ready to explode at any moment. It took a few different tries to find something I like but these have been working great.

I use XJ switches and wiring from the boneyard. They are metal so no breaking.

Mine are OEM for the jeep, and are hit or miss these days.

I always gotta screw around with them, wiggle them around. Think it's a contact issue.

Good to know there are easy alternatives.

Stop whining about the 'ride' - If your YJ ain't wrangling your soul free, then might I suggest you buy a stationwagon... at least you can fit all your bull**** in the back.
