'98-00 hazard switch vs. 2000-02 AC Temp Control & Swap

So I had a failing A/C control and it was just unreliable in the South Florida swamping heat. So I found what I thought to be a 100% compatible control and vent console and bought it. Newer style clock and hazard switch which doesn't illuminnate. So everything works perfectly and installs in minutes.... Except for the hazard switch interface which is totally different!

Anyone know of an adaptor or wiring diagram in order to re-enable my hazard switch?

I swapped to an 01 auto climate control unit and bezel, and just kept my 99 hazard switch to keep everything working fine.

Do as Red said...
IIRC it should plug in but DO NOT USE IT, it can burn up your drivers side multiplex due to different wiring. ( I said IIRC because I might be thinking of the TL)
Please tell me you didn't try to turn it on and now your Dash Lights and hazards dont work...blown multiplex

let me know, can you take a picture of the connector showing the wires to confirm ( I have an 01)
the pin-outs are

Re: '98-00 hazard switch vs. 2000-02 AC Temp Control & Swap

Went ahead and replaced the multiplexer yesterday and just in time! We got a severe rainstorm and traffic kept me far from home until late, so having dash lights was not only a safety feature, but it gave me confidence as well.

I found a used one in Ebay and only paid $35 for it shipped to me. After an hour of being baked in the sun I was able to go on with my day and into the night.

Next question, now that I know for a fact I burned out my unit, what actually fried? I mean I took the thing apart and the capacitors on the enclosed board were fine, so could it be as simple as swapping out the Siemens fuse blocks to get one working again? Just asking for curiosity sake is all.

Hey, Sorry for the late reply. On mine it was a blown capacitor iirc. You can usually smell the burned one lol.

I suppose mine failed with less visual evidence. Capacitors aren't even swollen. A learning experience for sure.
