Thanks George. This will be a good little project to keep me busy for a night or two. That is a great idea to have them come on with the headlights instead. I think I will attempt to set that up for sure!
On another note, I am heading to a machine shop tomorrow to put holes in a piece of lexan that I am using to mount some toggle switches for my launch control, etc. I am thinking about using the sandblaster to etch words into the lexan and then side light it so they show up at night :)
You can rebuild all the dash switches in '91 20v. The seat heater switches
are a little dicey. When you dis-assemble the switch there is a microscopic
ball bearing used as detent that will fall out and evaporate. Use caution. I
have had good luck drilling out the red plastic to create more room for the
bulb. I also drill the PC board and take the lamp leads through the board
and solder them onto the traces behind. Much easier than screwing around
trying to solder the short leads on the face of the board. Also, the lamps
are on whenever the ignition is on, burning up the bulbs. I have jumpered
the heater switch bulbs to the headlamp circuit so they only come on when
the headlights are on. I have had my '91 since new and have done all the
switches at least twice.
