If that works out - nothing like it! Pure plug & play for all doors. To check - just open the panel on the co-driver seat. Its easy to remove.
I just checked the front passenger side power window harness and it has 5 slots, 3 at top 2 at bottom. The bottom two are powered . Checked with multi meter and it showed 10.7V with the parking lamps turned on! It would be a plug and play for me to convert all the switches to back lit.

I have ordered only the 4 switch driver side module from Boodmo. Will convert the passenger doors later since it is an expensive DIY to do in one shot for me. Also, it is the driver side switches that will be used the most!

Thanks fellas! Love to know you liked it. Yes - we wish these people won't skimp - and they always do! And at places that make them look rather silly at face value.

Ain't that fantastic? I had anticipated that you'll have the wiring in place. And aren't I jealous now!

I opened up the Co-driver side switch module of my June 2019 Nexon and unfortunately it has only 3 wires. So I am planning to change the driver side switch module for the time being.

Anyway , thanks for the wonderful DIY.

Superb DIY Reinhard. Awesome step by step instruction with pictures, as always.

@Vik0728, I agree with you on the "GO TO thread for Creta/Seltos/Venue" part. Already bookmarking this thread for a future project on my Venue, once I've got a hang of the things in the car (Its still brand new you see, not even a month old )
