I am trying to find a universal switch mine fell into pieces.lol it's on a pd4106 .im trying to wire it with toggle switch and a relay I tried with just toggle switch with 4contacts and have brake and directional switch but don't have brakes unless directionals are on I guess I will need relay so power doesn't back feed to directional relay any help would be awesome . Either with help with wiring  or replacement switch or contact for my switch .. Normally I would just try and find replacement . But we're going on small road trip Friday! Thanx everyone

Toggles switches works with 4 terminals a 2 terminal switch won't work unless you install a flasher for each side

good luck

That was the Signal Stat model I had on my first truck with the headlight dimmer switch on the floor. Now my present truck has a similar Signal Stat with the high low headlight selector on the end of the turn stock. Your choice. Good Luck, TomC

You can buy those with the cruise,turn, high low beam, four way,wipers and horn all in one a 100 bucks vs 20 bucks,  42 bucks is a little steep buy from Ryder Fleet Truck Parts they are just a little over 20 bucks for the VSM 900 universal model

good luck

Just letting you know, when I posted that link it was merely for reference.  I did not research to check on price.  I assume they are available through parts stores like Napa too.

What turn signal switches do that toggles don't is turn off the brake light on the side blinking.

Follow the wiring instructions included with the turn signal. With a 2 lamp rear system the rear turn signals are bypassed when the brake circuit is energized but not the front ones. If you have a 4 lamp rear system the brake lights are independent from the turn signals. You do need the proper wire count turn signal switch. They come in 4, 5, 7 and 9 wire combinations I believe.
