Kwikee Step Switch

Series 25 3 step works great when opening and closing door but lighted switch is no longer lighted and works nothing after coming out of the dealer for a step swap out. Drawings show a fuse for the switch but can't find one. This is on a Fr3 DS25 RV! any ideas on this one. Don't want to take it back to the dealer so they can break something else.

From your description, I don't completely understand what your symptoms are. I think that you're saying that the new step works normally in all ways, except for a previously lighted switch seems to no longer have a function.

Are you talking about a power switch or the retract-override switch? Some rigs have a separate power switch and others (like mine) don't use one - the step is wired direct to the chassis battery through a fuse with other smaller wires connecting to the magnetic door switch and the manual retract override switch. The step's controller ensures that all the proper things happen when the ignition is turned on, etc. Your installer may have simply wired the step in that fashion, bypassing the separate power switch.

Solution Found

When the dealer installed the new step they must have shorted the override switch circuit as I finally found a 5amp fuse blown, replaced it and all is well. I thank you so very much for responding!
