What is the order of those switches in the 14? I might as well make them match those. Just a wild guess but is it the same as the pic's int he first post?

Is it wheel, charge open, lock, timer off?

Note that the 2011s and 2012s have different switches.
The top row has different size switches from the bottom row, so you can't swap switches between the two rows.

In order to release the dash panel, you have to first remove the two hex-head screws that hold the hood & charger release handle assembly, move that assembly out of the way, and then remove the one torx-head screw that holds the panel in place.

The rest of the instructions are the same.

Actually, you don't need to do that. The panel is flexible enough that you can pull it out just far enough to use a stubby philips to release the switch bracket and do the job with nothing more than a stubby. I did it just two days ago and only removed the screws holding the buttons to the panel.

I don't suppose the wiring for defeating the external sounds is still there in the 13/14 model even though the button isn't? It would be just too easy if I could just install a button and plug it in...

I will be re-arranging them in my 2013 S to read Wheel, Charge Door, Timer Off, Lock (order from most-used to least...and I really need to be able to see the Wheel Heat light when I'm driving. All the others I adjust as I'm on my way out the door.

Great mod! Here's what I came up with:

Image

I was tired of all the charge-related buttons being jumbled up with the steering wheel heater... and not being able to see the steering wheel heater button... and hitting it by mistake when I meant to disable the charge timer...

I get that Nissan doesn't want anyone accidentally disabling traction control, which is why they gave it its own row, but I figure with two blanks next to it and being hidden behind the steering wheel, I'll be ok... :D

I should also really do this mod, seeing the steering wheel heat button is quite hard for me when driving, having to try and peer through the steering wheel is kind of a hazard, what was Nissan thinking :roll:
