Will it set a light off on the dash?

I don't think so - this is a very common "fix" you'll find recommended among PSD users because the switches are known to leak and most people never experience a plugged filter if they do regular maintenance.

You can prove it by disconnecting the switch you have (pull the wire).

Thx! I should have thought to unplug it. I bought the switch from IHC today for 35 dollars. Thanks for all the help!
