Power mirror switch conversion

Postby KARR » Sun Oct 05, 2014 1:39 pm

I was thinking of how to convert the power mirror switches to the white rocker switches in the lower console.
Is this possible? Has anyone tried that? I don't have any electronic experience other than minor soldering so any help is appreciated.
Thanks.

Considering that the mirror switch is a four way switch (forward, reverse, side to side), it could be done. You'd have to toggle between the mirrors with the use of another lower console button to direct the power coming from the white rockers to whatever mirror you'd want to adjust. BUT, here's the BIG BUT, I'm not aware of what amperage the factory switch is versus the white rockers. I had some, but can't recall.

Thanks. The white rockers are 5A but I'm not sure what the factory switch is...

I think it's stamped or inked on it somewhere, but I might be wrong.
