Power Window Switch Wiring Diagram

Recommended Posts

I figured out the switch except for what two spades would be used for the light (internal to the switch, lights when you turn on your dash lights). If I use an adjacent switch for the "light" power what are the wire colors. (2004 Boxster S)

Also what color is/are the wires to the powered cell phone connector. Is this wire always hot?

Looking at the back of the switch, each terminal is labeled with a very, very, small number. The nite illumination terminals are the most outboard terminals (#5 on the left, and #3 on the right). This is, assuming you're looking at the switch, upright, with the two terminals that are very close together (#2 & #1) at the top.

Terminal #3 would normally be connected to a ground (BROWN) and terminal #5 connected to the positive LED dimming bus source (GREY/BLUE/RED) to get the nite illumination functioning on that switch.

You mentioned that you've figured out the switch's internal connections. If you have any doubts about the idiosyncrasies of the power window switch and how it differs from other switches, you might want to check out this link below, to a RennTech thread. The thread has a wiring diagram for the switch and I made a few comments there about the switch's operation.

Keep in mind, that the ground you connect to terminal #3 on the switch will be felt at the output of terminals #1 & #2 whenever the switch toggle is NOT being pressed.

Here's the female telephone prep. connector connections on my '99 996 Coupe:

#1. RED/GREEN - +12V (fuse E6), from the batt. However, it needs a 7.5a fuse & a second fuse contact installed on the fuse panel to be active.

#2. GREEN/BLACK - +12V (fuse E8), ign. switch position II & III

#3. YELLOW/BLACK - tel. mute

#4. BROWN - ground
