Default Unused switches on left side of dash

Any ideas on what controls we are missing here? I did find a harness routed to this area, but have no clue what could be on the other end of those wires.

Go to this link for a photo...can't upload from this device...

Default Re: Unused switches on left side of dash

In the top left space, I'm installing my VDC bypass switch. I bought Subaru part #H4510FJ000, it's a maintained foglight switch from a 12 Impreza I believe. The XV harness has the 4 wire plug for this switch, I just need to do a little cutting-preserve the 12+/- for switch illumination, but utilize the actual switch contact wires to make/break the inline fuse.

Thinking about covering the foglight imprint on the switch with a "happy face", cause with the VDC bypassed, you can have a little more fun with the car.

I was thinking about doing this with one of those safety cover switches but it might be too big. Your way is clean... I thought the switch was cool though.

Perfect for the [shadow=red,left]NOS[/shadow] switch.

Default Re: Unused switches on left side of dash

Cool switch but totally unnecessary. I did a VDC bypass with a low amp single throw switch. I couldn't find a good way to use the "factory knock out" so I improvised. Works fine and I retained the factory switch location if I find something cooler. There's not a lot of room behind the panel. I found it easier to add aftermarket switches for my aux lighting below that panel. Cool thing about this forum is you can learn from other peoples mistakes. Read lots.....drill once. Post your success / failures so we can all get smarter.

If it matters here's what I installed. There way more room for wires below the panel and closer to the steering column.
