3 way light switch

The overhead lights in my 1976 Sovereign are original and I am having problems with the 12 v 3 way switch. By turning the knob counter clock wise you cycle through the 3 light options, low, med high. This turns on 2 bulbs, 4 bulbs and the full 6 bulbs. Only the low 2 bulb option works. I can keep turning the knob and sometimes get more bulbs to turn on but it seems the switch is not making good contact as it should. I wonder if this switch is available, any thoughts, thanks.

They don't make that particular switch any more. You'll need to replace with something like this. Just want one with a long enough stem for the light.
You won't be able to use the old knob on it unfortunately.
Out if doors mart and vintage trailer supply sell them, but you can usually find cheaper at HD or Lowes.
It's an easy swap.
