That would be case IF the VSP button was a "locking" button but it's not. It's just a button.Stanton wrote:Maybe I wasn't clear, but if it's a "locking" button (like the VSP) you wouldn't have to "hold it down" the whole time.QueenBee wrote: So when ever you want just the fan to run you'd press the button and then turn the fan on and continue holding the button until you turn the fan off?? That seems a bit extreme from a usability point of view just so you don't have to drill/use the included switch.
You don't need to do anything with the mode 2 lead if you don't wand to use that mode. Connecting the mode 2 wire to the center brown wire would cause you to always be in mode 2 unless mode 1 was on.
My intent would be for the default of normal operation (no change), and to "engage" for no heat.
My understanding is: if you short the "Mode 2" wore to the center brown wire, you effectively eliminate/defeat that mode; that would leave you with either "Mode 1" or "Mode 0" (no change). If my assumption is incorrect, then hopefully Tor will jump in and correct me.
I'll let Tor correct you as well but think of what the switch included is doing. In off nothing is connected. In mode 1 the mode 1 wire is connected to the center brown wire. In mode 2 the center brown wire is connected to the mode 2 wire. If you hardwire the mode 2 wire to the brown center wire you always be in mode 2. If you leave the mode 2 wire disconnected then by switching mode 1 wire to the center brown wire you can switch between heat off or heat on full.
The heated seat install thread has a diagram of the switch but it basically has three modes. Off, in parrallel or in series controlling the back and bottom heating pads to create the low and high. One would need to verify but I believe the light is switched separately from the main power as part of being able to dim it with the dash lights.
Tor, just to be clear I wasn't critiqueimg your switch and design as its perfect in that it's so simple and thus you were able to have it made affordably. Thanks again!!!
