Default Perfect Switches for Center Console (heated seat slots)







I've seen a million threads on all the Z forums about what to do with the switch blanks on the center console. After test fitting multiple different rocker switches and not being completely satisfied with the look, I finally found the perfect switch. They're push button on/off with dual LEDs (amber logo comes on with dash light and green text comes on when button is pushed into on position).

I got them from a company called Air On Board that makes switches for Xterras and Pathfinders, etc...I think it's mostly directed toward off-roaders and their need for powering various aftermarket accessories, but the important thing is that they mount exactly the same as the heated seat switches!!! I'll be linking this post over to the370z.com as well since I got some info from there in my research process and I believe they fit the 370 as well. They need to be wired up with an in line fuse and relay, so if anyone needs my diagrams, I'd be happy to post them as well.

I have a base model so I had 3 slots to fill.

Left: Fog Lights on/off (ijdmtoy LEDs)
Middle: Reverse Camera on/off
Right: Dual USB port (not from air on board but same direct mounting)
-One side is a USB extension plugged to the back of my head unit for apple carplay and the other is a charging only port with power coming from the rear cigarette lighter.

Perfect! Been looking for somewhere to mount USB connectors when I pull the trigger on a HU install!

Thanks!

i believe the switch blanks to the left of the steering column (by the fuel door release button) are the same size as well if you were gonna mount your phone or other device on the left side. i considered this but im looking into pro clip or kuda to mount to the right of my head unit...plus i wanted the charging port to be easily accessible for passenger use.

That is the site, but not the exact switch. I just scoured their website and their ebay listings, but couldn't find any. Maybe they stopped making them? Looks like all the new Nissans come with those wider switches now...you might wanna call/message them and ask. Here's a screenshot of my ebay purchases back from 2016, hope this helps.
