Can anyone help me with this?
SORRY ABOUT THAT - I cleaned out my mail box, and accidently deleted your PM.
Anyway, here is the info:
Looking at the back of the switch, there is a notch in the top right.
Third pin over is the ground, so if there is no (but should be) black wire already in it, you need to add one and splce into the black wire in the harness.
on the bottom row of pins, , the 2nd from the left is the lighting pin. (on the plug, it is the 3rd opening from the left.)
Add your wire to that pin, and spice to any orange panel lighting wire.
If the switch you have is from a 2003 or 2004, the problem may be that the circuit board is not wired to the switch pins.
You'd need to pull the switch apart to see if it is. (cost cutting)
