kickdown switch

I noticed yesterday that the kickdown stopped working.
Got under it today and unplugged the switch, then jumpered the plug (bypass the switch). When I turn the key on, I can hear the solenoid click.
That tells me the solenoid is good and I'm getting 12v to the switch.

To test the switch, I hooked up the dvm to it and there is continuity when the switch is depressed. Also tested with a separate 12v supply and a test light.
So it looks like the switch is ok.

Yet when everything is plugged in , turn the key to start and press the switch, I don'y hear the solenoid click.
What am I missing?

Working again.

Apparently it just needed to be taken apart and put back together a few times. Maybe just a bad connection. Just took it for a drive and it's working again.
