interesting idea and would like thoughts

Postby CharlaineC » Fri Jan 25, 2013 2:47 am



Ok so I have sitting before me a set of the autolevel controls for an ltd/sei. well I dont need them but...
The box would be in the perfect location for three switches controlling my body lights, guard lights and fog lights.
Has anyone ever thought to convert it over to use for other things? i'm really thinking about it. it would fit three rocker switches perfectly and I could still use the the four switch unit I want to get for other things. This has had me thinking. I'm sure that could use three either lighted rocker switches or three lighted toggle switches without issue.

They do make items like this :

( third one down )
I have often seen these on e-bay, and also often at a used wings and stuff shop near me ... Four Lighted switches, wires all set, sits on top of master cylinder... handy and close to thumb to switch things off and on ...
It might be less work to install

Yes I'm getting that console as well for some other lights and mods that I have planned. But I'd like to keep the the main body lights and fog lights on the left hand and the accessories on the right

Ok so with a little bit of time 15 minuets to be exact. A dermal. A dental drill bit and the switches. The conversion worked out great I mean except for the lac of the wood grain backing, you'd never know that it wasn't part of the bike. Hears a pic of the finished product before installation onto the bike. The switches are red and two blue but if I can find an yellow or green one I'm going to switch it. Ill do a full how to this weekend when I break from packing.
