Auto down switch - put in passenger side?

So one of the things I don't like about my truck is only the driver's side has auto down. I'm wondering if anyone has taken an extra driver's window switch and put it on the passenger side? It looks like the switch just has a rocker in it and that's all (haven't pulled the panel to be sure). It also looks like if I order a new switch, all 4 come as one unit (I need a black one too).

Thoughts anyone. It's on my to do list of things to at least try. It would be nice to have auto up as well but I'd settle for just auto down for both front windows.

i thought about this when i had spare switches and after looking at the boards its slightly more complicated wiring wise and i didnt want to try and mess with it.

what you might be better off trying is getting a switch from a newer truck that has both fronts auto down and even possibly auto up and trying to make that work with the existing stuff.

Here's as writeup I did years ago; all you need are some relays from a 2nd-gen Taurus. Did all the windows in the Bronco and the Excursion as well. It's a cheap mod and very handy in the summer.

I used these modules in my old Tundra and they worked great. One Touch Up And Down Window Unit - (Up AND Down) autoloc.com

thx for that link Chris. I've been looking for something like that for a long time

wonder if I need 1 module or 2 modules to make all 4 windows work? I like how it says you can hold the "lock" button down and it will roll down all the windows. It doesn't say, but I'm betting the same will happen if you hold down the "unlock" button


just ordered one. now to wait and see if it arrives

You've probably figured out by now that it takes one module for each window.

I ordered the module, the seller canceled my order because apparently Hawaii is not a part of the USA and I was an "Overseas buyer"

idiot


but yeah, I discovered these modules are 1 window each. Keep intending to order 2 of them for the front windows. Just haven't gotten around to justifying the $70 right now with other stuff I need to do

You should only need one for the front, since the left window is already auto down.

no, I need 2

I plan on installing the modules on both front doors. I want both of them to roll down when I'm using my remote while walking up to the truck. stupid, but something I'd like to have
