+2 switch I.D.

PostPost by: rdssdi » Tue Dec 28, 2004 7:43 pm

I am trying to determine which rocker switch controls which function.

I have a rocker switch that is momentary on - off - momentary on. Momentary
on denotes a spring loaded rocker. What is this switch for? The best I can
determine is the rear defogger. But I do not see a relay or relays on the
wiring diagram to perform that function. A relay would be necessary when using a
momentary switch.

Sorry forgot to mention. I have identified the window lift switches. They
are also momentary on - off - momentary on as I have described. But they have
jumpers cross connecting the first and third the terminals.

The switch I need to identify is without jumpers and is also double pole.
The middle function has one spade terminal that is jumped between the poles.
The first position has two spade terminals and the third position is blank
without any connectors.

Why three positions?

I believe the washer is a single pole momentary on - off switch.

In my home market +2S, there was a momentay contact switch for headlamps on, but it's been so long now (Oct 86) that I don't remember if there were 2 ons or just one. But I can remember having just the parking light on, so itmust have had two on positions. It was right next to the vacuum switch to raise the headlamp pods, and IIRC, the lights were turned off by dropping the lamp pods.

I'm pretty sure this is the sidelight switch, Which has a momentary down
action for on and up action for off. That's what my +2S130 has.

I've got one of those on my S4. It works the power antenna the PO
installed in the trunk.
