    I used to have a 97 silverado, which had those controls. You can extend the wires, but it is a complete PITA



    oh, and that's a 10.4" touchscreen in there.

    Did you just have to like cut the wires in the middle and add extension wire or did it require way more work than that to be able to move it?

    Oh now you see the potential of my idea!

    YOu could always use this to control your dials behind the dash but i suspect they would rip the knobs off (oo-er missus!)

    I can think of a lot of things I would like to use those things for....

    basically.

    I had to extend each wire individually by:

    1. cut wire about 4-6 inches from the and of the harness
    2. pull that wire down through all the dashboard crap, because the harness wouldnt come down far enough (this was like 4 years ago so I dont really remember
    3. use 2 butt connectors and some 12-14ga multistrand wire to extend the original wire.

    I had to do this one at a time because all my "extended wires" were now the same color. It was a complete pain and took me 2 days IIRC. I drove around that entire summer with my interior panels sitting in my dorm room. I suggest doing as much work as possible at once, or be like me and be able to remove your entire interior in 45 minutes or less

    Yeh, I see the potential of your idea. I just need the hardware stuff

    I'm not so sure about the sliders though

    I imagine you could handle the slider situation using one of these:

    R/C Servo Slider

    Click the link and do a search for Linear R/C Servo

    Incidently, here's another source for parts to help with the knob connection:

    Servo Shaft Adapters

    I used some of these to hook R/C servos up to my heating duct work in the basement. I may end up using them in the Jeep as the vent controls are not electric but vacuum based! Sounds like fun, eh!
