Making progress yay. Yeah I know it sometimes sucks but now that you know these problems they can be fixed.

Does the switch have one or two connector pins on it?

If it has one it will control ground, and if so something is loose and not making contact. It could be corrosion as well. If so when you pull on it you pull on whatever is loose and it makes contact.

If it has two it would likely (since you already replaced the switch) be a bad connector. if you can take a picture of the end of it looking into the slots I might be able to help you jury rig it, maybe even fix it. But most likely it will have to be replaced which will require splicing in a new one and the part stores are often proud of their connectors. I payed $20 for one on my Jeep recently.
