Default buttons.....

Does anyone know where I can find the interior pieces like the power seat buttons in the armrest, and the traction control buttons?

Other than yard surfing, is there a place I can order online?

Unless your car came from the factory equipped with these options they will not be plug-and-play. Just a heads up in case you can't find the wiring in your car.
If you've scoured you're local yards then ebay is your best bet.
Also, another head'* up -if your car is a 1992-1993 and is equipped with TC you will need the button strip from a 1992-1993 as they have a pigtail harness with the male connector -the 1994+ don't have the pigtail harness -rather the connection is a female connection and is part of the bottom of the button strip.

Thanks for the advice, but I want to use the buttons to control other accesories. I just want an OEM look, rather than putting cheasy looking toggle switches in it.

I plan on repainting the buttons and relabeling them. Will be tedious work, but worht it, I think.

do you mean illuminating the writting itself? that'* simply. I won't know for sure until I get them and take a closer look....

but it would seem to me that as long as you put white lettering on them, and paint the lettering part white, the light will shine through.

I plan on taking step by step instructions and pics when I do this. I have heard a few people comment that they would like to do the same.....

cool. thanks.

Will post more when completed. It will be a while, though, as I am getting motor kinks worked out.

The traction control buttons will illuminate when plugged into your car.
