I believe those are just stickers stuck on the blank spots to make it looks like they are switches....

Barmanvarn There is a circuit board the runs the length of the switch panel. You could probably install switches with a bit of sweat, but it wouldn't be painless.

I had the same idea a while back and decided against it.

The dude who did it was some kind of electrical engineer - as I recall there was a fair degree of soldering and componentry.

Edit: nope, sorry. Can't find it anywhere.

Guess I'll just have to pull off the cover and check it out. Seems a waste to have 5 open spots and you can't even put anything in there.

That sounds right. I couldn't quite remember. I would love to have stock looking switches wired in those spots

But I have a feeling you cannot use these empty slots due to the complex wiring behind. You would have to know what you are doing... If it can be done, awesome, because that is exactly what I wanted to do.

Instead, I placed 4 switches above the speaker next to the steering wheel. Don't have pics right now sorry.
