Default aw ..

I had a good idea. . . :(


Take a Junkyard pod from a '92 SSE supercharged and use it in my 95 SLE as a neon switch to look factory.. The buttons would work, but the covers that have text on them, are just that.. they snap onto a button assembly..



Obvious which is which.. the left is the cover for the dummy button on the lower two (which i believe is perform/normal ride) on the other ones.. they just snap onto here




My idea.. use that junkyard pod for neons, wire the neons up to that switch for perform/normal shift.. use my covers since I have the two top ones as nothing..



MY PROBLEM***

LOOK AT THE WIRING..

1. Junkyard switchpod:



2. My car..



I know it will work .. by looking at this. (the cover idea over the working buttons if i can make it work)



My stepdad said he could help me take a look at it (works on high-output copy machines .. digital/colorizing ones.. for a living. he does small soldering/wiring/alot of wiring crap for a living.. he knows alot about the stuff.). but I also wanted some insight from members here. What you think about this, and what could I do to make it work?

PS, the backlighting in the buttons is NOT going to be used as it'* going to look like regular fake buttons, but they're really going to work with my neons that I want to install.

It'* been done. In fact, the pinout differences between the two pod types is posted here somewhere.

You'll need the buttons to control a relay for the neons.

On the connection differences...if you get a year closer to yours..you'll have the right connector for your car.

None of my local yards have anything fresh worth picking over. Soon enough. Meanwhile if Saturday isn't a monsoon...Toasty and I (maybe others) will be hitting up some yards by him.
