It is a simple switch. You can adjust it by the bolt up and down at the point you want it to kick down. First I would make sure with a test light that it works. Check both side when it is in normal position , youi should only have 12 volt on one side . Then push up and test that it light up 12 volt at WOT. If it lights up in both postions normal the switch is bad or if it doesnt light up when WOT.
Hope this helps....

Brian - Is there any way you can post a pic ? If it's what I think, there is a small grommet like piece that holds the cable on the pedal.

Joe - Great advise as usual but thats for a t-400 with a switch where Brian mentions a cable and thats for a t-350. I don't mean any dissrespect. Just pointing that out in case someone needs help with that in the future.

It sounds to me like the cable isn't moving smoothly if it is unhooking itself. It's probably damaged on the other end.
