Does anyone have a schmatic for a 10-switch box? I dont like the boxes that you buy, i want to custom make my own...

Switches:
Front
Back
Left side
Right side
Pancake
Seesaw
Front Left
Front Right
Back Left
Back Right


Is there any way to do even more then these 10? Diffrent things?

Thanks all for the help!

If you are going to custom make your own, you should spend some to learn how switches work. That way you can better troubleshoot your setup later. There's 9 wires.

Postive
Front Left Up
Front Left Down
Front Right Up
Front Right Down
Rear Left Up
Rear Left Down
Rear Right Up
Rear Right Down

All the moves you mentioned are from any combo of those wires. Just remember that you'll need positive ran to each switch and a seperate terminal on each switch if you are combining wires so that they aren't shorted together all the time.

Hope this helps, but if its too much to figure out theres a tech section on our main page that can help you. :cool:

i think i remember them being pretty cheap on ebay. why not just buy one of those, and part it out. just use the switches, already wired.

most people use toggle switches that have multiple prongs, ie; double pole, double throw, three pole, double throw, etc...
all with center detent and momentary contacts

(on) off (on)

yes, the momentary rocker switches are what i was referring to...

1 switch for = Front Left Up/Down
1 for = Front Right Up/Down
1 for = Rear Right Up/Down
1 for = Rear Left Up/Down

1 for = Both Fronts Up/Down
1 for = Both Rears Up/Down
1 for = Both Rights Up/Down
1 for = Both Lefts Up/Down

1 for = All Four corners Up/Down

1 for = Switch Up, Both Fronts Up while Both Rears Down - Switch Down, Both Front Down while Both Rears Up

does that all sound correct?

Why don't you just run 4 switches (one for each corner) and save yourself a bunch of work.
