In search of a dashboard switch/button - like the ESP one...

    Hi all,

    I want to be able to turn on an external amp in the boot of my B7 Avant - the "remote" cable from the Bose seems to be a constant feed and not really a switched feed.

    I want to wire the "remote" wire to a switch on the dash to manually turn the amp on/off. I would like to find a switch that would replace the blanking plates next to the ESP button on the dash...

    ... does anyone know the part numbers or where I can buy one?

    Many thanks...

    There is a parking distance control button on eBay at the moment.

    Kufatec did sell several buttons but last time I looked I couldn't find them.

    I saw quite a few on eBay yesterday when I was searching for something else. It just takes having a look and a bit of patience.

    There is permanent live to the amp & switched live however the amp & head unit only fully switches off several minutes after the ignition key is removed.

    Is there any reason you cannot take a new switched live feed from the fuse box on the drivers side, as that will be far quicker, & you don't have the worry about forgetting to switch the amp off, and end up with a flat battery.

    Thanks all. I didn't realise that the switched live stays ON until you lock the car. Very bizarre. I think I will do it that way now.

    In previous installs, the remote has been immediately.

    Many thanks people.
