Can someone provide me with a part number or a link to a regular size (not a Mini) AP disconnect switch. The one I just installed gives me the message that the "A/P disconnect switch is stuck" I'm not sure if its NO or NC, but I clearly bought the wrong one.

Thanks

The switch should be NO. When pushed, it will close the loop to ground.

If you installed the wire and resistor to detect a stuck button, try disconnecting that first. You may have a bad resistor.

The AP disconnect button needs to be a momentary switch like the push to talk button. If it's staying on when you press it, it'll think it's stuck.
