    Trying to replace a micro switch at the rear of the chair that is associated with the push-power handle. There are two small white wires comming from the control box and two larger white wires coming from the motor housing, and are powered. Not sure where to attach the wires at the switch. The motor is a Merits S331. I think the chair is a Mercury 9. Thanks for any direction.

    It's difficult to tell anything without pictures. Can you just remove the switch, find a similar switch and replace it?

    Therein lies the problem. The switch was damaged and it, along with any connection details, were discarded and ignored. I have a new switch, but no info on the wirie connections.

    In that case your best bet is to look for a schematic, or try to find a similar power chair that you can look at. Unless you find someone familiar with that specific chair, I doubt anyone will be able to help without at least more details and some pictures. It sounds like you might be missing more than just a switch.
