The bypass switch was replaced with a new DTDP switch, although wired wrong. Got it rewired correctly, but the pedal did not give any effect. The problem was the new potentiometer, too much heat when soldered had caused the wiper soldering lug to lose its contact. By taking the pot apart and reattach the rivet it could be saved.
