And which stock switches do you have? The TC, perf shift, normal shift, Perf ride and touring ride aren't buttons you want to play with as they send certain signals to the pcm and are built on a mini circuit board designed for it.

I have one toggle switch in my SSEi, none in my SLE. And I won't. The one I DO have is very well hidden. It'* the high-speed fan override.

Toggle switches are ugly and impractical IMO, particularly so when compared to stock OEM switches.

There is the possibility of doing custom work like this stuff. Here'* a pic of my seat switch pod. It has a button for fan mod and a little hood for a pac swi (unit that allows you to use your steering wheel controls with an aftermarket radio)

Or this where I put my microphone for a hands free kit.


Do you need some custom work on something like this?

Or something similar (both my cars are identical):


Left and right black switches are front and rear radar for both cars, the big red switch is the Gtech in the SSEi, and the high speed fan override on the SLE/SC.

The high speed override is to give you the ability to turn your fans on. Say you are driving and hit traffic. Dead stop.. your fans don't kick on until 215 degrees on low speed then at 225 the high speed comes on. You could turn the fans on when you hit the traffic and never go above 200.

More info under performance and brainstorming section. Or PM me and I'll get you more.

Haro..Randman showed me the way on the PAC SWI... I did the switch, down to mounting the switch bracket. Need some custom work?
