|X50ARM||I believe that the switches just interface with the cpu on the circuit board and it in turn communicates to other modules on the CANBUS. It might be possible to go in and cut traces on the circuit board and attach wires from the switches to an external relay, but I have a feeling it would be a real PITA. I think I would go with a SPOD, A-Pillar Switch holder, or install switches on the lower left hand side of the dash depending on money availability and aesthetic preference.|

|vacca foeda||Is the whole panel replaceable? I've got a base sport, so have an awful lot of blanks. Could I replace the panel with one from a fully loaded jeep? Then wire accessories to the unused ones? Example would be push the seat heater button for rock lights.|

I cant believe that these individual single squares in this rectangular bezel are not removable for a possible future switch installation.
There are seven squares in that bezel of which 4 of them are used (OEM installed), leaving me with three nice options for upgrades and you are telling me that these three squares are not removable???

|JeepHerz||That is one big, single plastic piece. You can't really add anything to it. You can run wire to it if you want- but you can't alter the bezel so its uselesss. If Jeep had made the "buttons" removeable/replaceable they could actually be used. My Jeep didn't come with power windows- where the switches are in your pic is/was an open spot which fit my cell perfectly. And I hate (no offense) the giant gaudy power window switches. We added aftermarket power windows- and I tried every which way to rig the bezel for the window switches. No can do. Its this kinda stuff that pisses me off about the Jeep. Jeep owners scream "don't make it luxury" all day long and I think Chrysler uses this as an excuse to make it cheap.|

How difficult would it be to run wires internally to them??

|N3M0||x50 is correct. there is a circuit board behind the switches, if they didnt come from the factory tied to anything, they are pretty much useless from my understanding. it would make too much sense to be able to hook up aux lighting or anything else to them aftermarket...|

I will try to open one and see what's behind.
Thank you for your comment.

|X50ARM||Have not taken one out, but from what I understand what is behind there is a circuit board. Not any wire to tap in to or use. Vehicles with different options have a different module installed there with the appropriate switches.|

Are empty bezels pre wired on 2012 wrangler unlimited?
Are empty bezels pre wired on 2012 wrangler unlimited?.
I have several blanks there and was wondering if there any wires behind that. Looking to mount some additional lights and would use one or few of these bezels to put a switch there but not sure if its pre-wired.
Disregard the arrow on the picture. I am talking about these square switches that are not used. Are the cables behind that if new switch would be installed?
