    It sounds like a bad switch. Is it a round metal switch, or a boss type housing?



    What kind of pedal is it? I've had issues with loose wires causing shorts in some EHX pedals.

        Hmm. I'm not familiar with that one, but if it's built like the Boss pedals sometimes the momentary switch inside stops working properly. In boss stuff it can be replaced by soldering in one of these:
