I am looking at doing a mod soon and i need a three position switch, ON-OFF-ON, but i want something factory.

I am trying to brainstorm which switches in the EF/ELs are like this. I am slightly allergic to gumby-a*** aftermarket swtiches all around the place. :lol:

I have an econ switch to use for the ON-OFF switch that i need.

That reminds me, if anyone has a three button demister surround let me know.

Cheers,
Nic

hmm, well demister, antenna, econ and wiper are all two stage switches.

There are the power window switches which are three stage, but obviously spring loaded, and I'm assuming you'd prefer the option of a window conversion if you haven't already done it.
headlight switch would obvisiously be out i gather, hmm have you done the intermittent wiper mod yet, maybe the adjuster on the stalk?
What's this for by the way?

What about a wagon rear wiper switch? I am not too sure if that is what you are looking for, but I can't see any that would be.

does a rear wiper switch work like that? i thought they were only a momentary on switch?

ozbmx - i'm putting in a set of driving lights, but i want to be able to have it as on, off, or on with high beams. i dont mind the idea of a power windows switch, but it would need to be modded to not be a hold down button. and i've already done power windows!! :lol:

krisisdog - i'm keen to see what people reckon too. but yeah. there isnt the greatest selection.

How about a switch usually used for LPG systems, three way (petrol, gas, nothing) and there are some particularly for falcons to look factory fitted.

fnp - really? how come an LPG system would have a "No Fuel" option? fair enough.
