If you're gonna use wd-40 or brake cleaner fluid, make sure you cover the nozzle with cloth or something so that the fluid doesn't go all over your explorer. And to be safe, wash the area around the nozzle with soap and water so that the paint won't get damaged in any way. I like to play it safe.

the button might also be messed up in that combo switch mine takes a few pushes to get it to work.
