Default maintaining radio silence

Hello all

I'm new to this site, and very relieved to see such good support on this complex 94 ssei machine. I know you have answered this question a million and a half times before, and I'm sorry for reasking. The tech info section is down, and I think article 53 would of answered most my questions. The radio controls on my steering wheel is not working, or it changes channels at will. I removed the switch and taken apart. I noticed the printed circuit board contains 4 micro switches. A total of 8, if you include the other board. The 2outer microswitches , when pushed, makes an audible click. The 2 inner ones do not make any noise nor do I think that they are actually pushing in at all. Determined that these inner switches are bad, I journeyed down to the local junk yard. I purchased the same radio switches. I just took that switch apart to find the exact same thing. I'm puzzled why this switch is the exact same way. Both outters are clicking and the 2 in the middle are not. I download the ALL DATA manual, it said that the radio recieves signal via resistance changes. Are these micro switch simple on or off switches, or do they have built in resistors? I want to desolder the good clicking ones and install them into the other board to have all them clicking. Also, please help me understand how the plastic buttons ingauge the microswitches???? I don't see how they make contact, obviously they do, I heard clicking noise when I pushed the buttons before I took it apart. I just don't see anything moving, when it'* pushed or rocked. Thanks for the help, Also, 1 last thing,,,Can a 94 ssei airbox be gutted?
