    I have three switches on my bass that changes the tone. Not sure what they are called. One of them are loose is it possible to fix it ?

    Very likely; consider using a tool known as a, "wrench".

    Addendum: You may need to remove the control cavity cover and support the switch from inside while tightening the retaining nut on the front surface.

    And be careful not to scratch the finish. Wrenches slip easily.
