Heated grips only work on high setting. Fix?

This is factory BMW heated grips on a 2004 R1150r.
I can get it to work on the high setting (real hot) but the lower setting does not work.
Is there an easy fix for this?

The switch sets the wire voltage going to the grips on BMWs. Lower voltage for low heat. Put a meter on the connector between the switch and grips, I can almost bet there won't be any voltage on the low setting.

May be possible to clean the contacts in the switch, my friend in Kiwiland just did that on his K and same switch as far as I know.
Have tools, will travel!
