Thumbs up.There you are gents and ladies - transplant complete
Hi @johnykalboExcuse my simple-mindedness. You are transplanting the switches from M6 board to M3 board, the transplant will give the 3 all four auto up down functionality. Then next week you will be adding the lighting, so in the end all power all lighted? Thanks for taking the time to detail the work involved. Hope the parts needed will be easily available and not too expensive. Cheers.
Haha, you're too kind MThis deserves to be christened The Chazzy Mod. Can any of the moderators add to the thread's title?
Top-notch work there, bud.
Actually, as I sit here at work twiddling my thumbs and dreaming up Mazda3 stuff, I can check this tonight. It just dawned on me that I do have two spare M6 switches. Once I get home, I'll re-assemble the circuit board with the two spare switches and give it a test.The boards look to be the same physical size and shape for both cars.
Do you have pin-outs for the switch assembly for both cars? Or could someone assist with finding them?
I'm just wondering if we can take a look and confirm if the "auto" feature is built into the control panel that you're looking at or if there's more to it in the car with additional modules / wiring / etc. Just thinking it may be worth looking at and confirming before you go too far now that you have both available to you at the same time.
If the pin outs are the same I would assume that the control boards (and switches) are interchangeable from one car to another and could potentially mean that the auto feature is built into the control panel.
