I am looking at switch 1J0959621C and there is a version 1J0959621D which says "for emergency vehicles". They cost the same...

 

What is the difference? If I had to guess, I would think the emergency vehicles may have more electrical load. But that makes no sense as if one can make a switch which can handle more load, there would be no reason to build a weaker model which is same cost anyway...

You'll find that the switches plastic is smaller thus leaving more space for more buttons...

Just buy the part that is for your car if you really need one

Maybe 1 has a timer function
Auto shut off after 10 mins. There is such a part.


Noonoo or greame86 fitted a timer function heated rear window switch to his before many years ago

I know the EPC button is timed I used that for a while to switch off the amplifiers while driving and getting a call... (yeah i changed the front with a FUNK button facia) but long story short i removed it and gave it to @Evil wonder if he will ever use it though...

Thanks, it seems 1J0959621D is the timer model.... Also mentioned at:

The transparent/led icon caved in when I pressed it a while back, but I already fixed it. :(

Otherwise the timer version would have been a really good upgrade, maybe I try it anyhow next year :)

I did it, works perfectly. Although I always switch off when the rear windows / side mirrors are clear anyway. I don't forget :)
