I replaced the shifter mounter OD switch in my Stag a while ago and was
having issues with it. I purchased another new Lucas unit from a
different vendor and had the same problem.
What was happening was that unless you pushed down on the button as you
engaged the switch the contact would not flip to the on position. A
couple drops of oil and a lot of cycles and both of my switches are
working now. I am not sure if it is a lack of lubrication or just the
grease getting more viscous during storage.
The problem is not hard to detect with the switch out of the car. You
should hear a distinct click as you move the switch just before the
button reaches the ON position. If you do not hear it click often
pressing down on the button causes the contact to "click" in.
