    Hello I almost have the same setup as you. I just dont have the parking sensors.

    Your walkthrough was great. I just need help with wiring the aux switches itself. I ordered the pins. I need to know what wires go where in the switch.
    I want to keep the same harness that is on my old switch.
    I want to use the new pins I have to go from new switch to the relay box.
    I ordered switch 68231819AD.

    Thank

    I just received the switch.
    Can anyone help on what pins go to the aux switches and what pins go on the towl/haul, and traction buttons.

    I attached photos if the switch.

    Thank you

    All I did was compair my old panel to the new one. And just added the pins to the open spots as needed.

    There are several Youtube videos on how to setup the Aux. switch panel

    4th Gen Electronics is mentioned, but they may have had more orders than they can handle

    This guy shows how to switch out the blank buttons with marked buttons & other handy tips



    The video that runs right after the first video goes into better detail & he shows how the OBDLink sets up the switch panel

    Does anyone know where I can purchase the correct connectors to make my own wire harness to go from my aux switch panel to the relay/fuse box? Or is there a video out there that explains how to do it? I’ve tried to contact 4th gen electronics by email and phone to see about ordering there kit but I haven’t had any luck which from my understanding they are swamped anyhow.. thanks in advance for any help on this.. I’m amazed at the knowledge on this specific topic and I hope someone can lead me in the right direction
