Hi all, Any suggestion for a switch to replace the glove box anti theft switch. My radioshack item just failed.

Hi James,
The original - like the S4 dash rocker switches - was an appliance switch made by Arcolectrics in the UK.
I suspect that most people will advise you not to replace it but remove it altogether.......however you might want to consider replacing it with a key switch. They are readily available and are somewhat more effective as an anti-theft device than a simple slide switch.
