  • Car Window Switch Replacement

    Im trying to make a screen come up in the back of my car, and i hooked it up to a power window motor, but i've been looking for a power window switch to put on my center console to control it, but all the single power window switches i find are like 30 or more dollars, and on ebay, there mainly all bunched together, no single switches.

    So I'm looking for a switch, that I can use instead of an actual window switch. But all I know is that it's a rocker type switch, but all of those, just switch from one side to the other, they don't pop back up like car window switches.

    Is there such a switch replacement, and does anyone know where I can find one?

      Don't know what it's actually called in english but in Sweden it's called unistabil or monostabil.
      Would guess it would translate into unistable/monostable. It comes in different versions
      (on)-off / (on)-off-(on) / (off)-on / (off)-on-(off). Where the one in paranthesis (sp?)
      is when the button is pushed, which then reverts back to its original position..
      If you're using a power window motor, then you problably would want the possibility of
      moving the screen down after hoisting it up. Thus a (on)-off-(on) switch would be perfect.

      Cheers

        You have to use a double pole double through with center OFF, Like those.

              you're looking for momentary switches. but why would you want to hold and press a button while the monitor rises?

              why dont you consider using a togle switch with a micro switch that will cut power when the monitor when it reaches its predetermined height? and then another switch at the bottom the monitors travel.

                    I thought about that, and that's why I went with the window switch. I also got one of those power window modules, that allows for one-touch open and closing of windows. So i just push down once and it goes down, then i push up once, and it goes back up. but I still need a replacement for window switches because there rediculously expensive, and there has to be a normal switch that does that same thing.
