Default Window switches

Random thought I can't get out of my head-

Can I replace all 4 center console window switches with wrecking yard Auto Down switches?

Would all 4 work like the driver one or did Saturn do something weird like make them go through the BCM?

Electrically it looks possible but I don't think the switch will fit on the other side . Even then it would only be auto down on the front windows

Default Re: Window switches

I am going to assume that the Vue electrical schematic is similar to the Ion schematic and my comments are based off that:

For the '06 Ion, Autozone has a wiring schematic for the power window switches:

Opening the specific power window sedan schematic (you have to click enlarge), it shows that the express logic for the autodown resides in the switch itself, and that the BCM only controls the line voltage going to the switch. In other words, the BCM provides the power to the switch but doesn't care what the switch does with it.

Based on that, it sure seems very feasible to pull the drivers window switch apart and take that express logic and make it work for any other window, either in the drivers switch module itself or for any other window switch in a different location.

Ya know? I am going to have to try this!
