Center Console Buttons

So there's all these unused buttons on the center console, it's there any way to make them functional?

Re: Center Console Buttons

Are you talking about on the opposite side of the ESP button? Anyone had the console off, is there enough room behind to add switches? I thought about doing this and using some clean (semi factory looking) toggle accessory switches there. I guess I just need to get of my rear and take it apart myself and check but haven't got that far.

I took mine apart when I first got it to put my head unit in and run some wires, but didn't pay close attention to it. It would be nice if we could since the row of buttons under the heater controls has like 8 buttons and only 1 is being used.

Svenska - I tried searching for this in the search bar but came up with nothing. Maybe someone can remember where it was an post a link?
