We have a good car wash near us that does a great job for $6. I don't use it very often because the brushes and water pressure seem harsh. I do not use it at all on our Honda CR-V because of the breakaway switch for the Brake Buddy. I was told if I wanted to use it just pull the pin on the switch then replace it when done. This would prevent me from loosing the pin. My question is should I be concerned about the inside of this switch getting wet? Any response will be appreciated. CCMSM

For 12 years I have not pulled the pin when I use a car wash.

No problem as it is weather proof.
