Your green wire should be the hot coming in from the fuse. Comes in on terminal 2 of switch,



The light blue wire is the switched wire, terminal 1, and goes to both the brake lights and the shift lock.



How many wires do you see on the switch?

I will have to crawl into the truck tomorrow and look at my switch. Drawings only show 2 pins with numbers.


Crud, shoulda looked harder online, found it.


Pins are numbered, when looking into the butt end of the switch, with the little locking tab up, as oriented per the switch in the link below



2 1 (bigger holes around pins)

4 3 (smaller holes around pins)



Says Switch out (free)

1-2 light (<1ohm)
3-4 open (>10k ohms)



Switch pushed in
1-2 open (>10k ohms)
3-4 light (<1ohm)




Crud, the thing Bam Zip Pow suggested
won't do that test, will need a battery to make it work. I supposed under the truck's hood using the main battery should work. May need a jumper from negative side of the battery to the switch.
