Auto Zone sells CRC products and they usually stock contact cleaner. It is found in the chemical isle right near the throttle body cleaners, etc. Red can. I've seen it sold elsewhere also. This is an excellent product.

I found some at Home Depot in the electrical department. $2.49 for a small can. Did not need much to clean and loosen the switch so it will push in and out again.
Sadly, it did not return my volume to a level that can be heard well. It only goes up about 1/8. Do not know what to do next exce[t by a new controller for the handle bar. I have tested the radio on another wing and it works fine.
ANy suggesstions?
