Q: Power Steering Pressure Switch discontinued...

asked by on

The PS Switch of my Intrepid 1999 is discontinued (original part: 4606269 or 4782205AB). I try searching for a replacement equivalent from others brands like, AIRTEX-1s6749, Carquest-53-47303, Wells-PS396, Standard Motors-PSS9, BWD-PS202, ACDelco-C1968 and none of them has it. Looking for this in a Yard is a problem because I will by a switch that was made on 1998 and 1999 and could be defective or near. My question is: What alternate solutions I have? Please let me know ASAP.

My car has 125000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
