Re: 2016 Maxima Power Window Switch (lighted buttons!)

Hey Marko,

I don't have the rental any more. The switch panel matched what I see listed on eBay for the 13-17 Altima. Both front windows have markings and are lit. I do not think the rears were, but I could be mistaken. I have one on the way as well.

Alright guys, the mystery is over, the 2013-2017 Altima master window switch has lights in the door unlock and window lockout buttons in addition to the main window button, which makes the light 200% better over the stock switch that has a light only in the main window button.

if anyone is missing a light there in the dark winter, buy this as an upgrade for 40-50 bucks. see pics below.

thanks again pyro for making that observation in the first place.

the passenger side probably has lights too.. i might just get one to match. i told myself i wasn't going to modify this car but i am ill i guess :lol:

This is ridiculous that they even have to put electronica on individual switches!! I always thought a switch is a switch... on. off.... this is too much for me...

As for me... I took the solution of making believe that I was touch typing..... And felt up the keys without looking, until my fingers did good work in the dark....

Mine came yesterday, so I'm glad it's going to work out. I got it for 30 shipped on eBay.

I would think that it cost Nissan more to reconfigure / reprogram their line to make a different (crappier) part.

Well, the switch set I got was marked as Altima, but it had auto up/down on both front windows and it does not work. Lights work, front window works, nothing else works. Sending it back.

did it have chrome strips along the tops of the buttons? in that case it was a maxima switch. I was pondering to keep the buttons and moving them over to the altima housing to have a fancier window switch but I couldn't justify paying that much for that little detail :)

Nope. But definitely different from the one you had. This one was marked as an Altima '13. Not sure if there was a difference between a base and a premium model maybe??

I was able to return this one, paying shipping, but the replacement that matches your, was only 24, so it's a wash price wise.

Maybe there was a small on change between 13 and 14? Some listings only say 14-16 not 13-16.

The auto up down means encoder driven motor, so same as the Maxima one i had basically. Probably an option so gotta watch for that.

thanks for this info guys! ordered my altima switches today on ebay, spent about 36 bucks total on both driver and passenger side parts. i should have them in by next week monday it says and ill install them right away.

its been frustrating actually, the fact that the switches are so low makes them down in a dark spot as well......Ive stumbled a few times trying to unlock the doors............ that i really pisses me off...glad to find this mod.

thanks,

-J
