DIY: Honda CRV Turn Signal Switch "Replaces Cheapo Ebay Switch"

Ok well starting off i know alot of people on here run the ebay fog light kit and there's nothing wrong with the kit but the cheap ass switch they send you. This DIY replaces that with the honda crv switch. Its a cheap and clean looking idea. If you dont like it idgaf and you can keep your cheap gay ebay switch....... Sorry for the shity pictures and no detail in write-up. Im pushing for time and this should be good enough. If you have more questions just post them below and i will gladly answer them later

FYI: THIS DIY WAS DONE ON A BASE RSX....... not sure if there are differences on a type s but should be the same

Parts/Tools Needed

1.) Honda CRV Turn Signal Switch "Obviously"
2.) Phillips Head Screwdriver
3.) Flat Head Screwdriver
4.) 3-4 Ft Of Wire
5.) 2 Wire Connectors
6.) Electrical Crimper/Splicer

FIRST OFF PLEASE READ THROUGH THE WHOLE THING!!!!! IF YOUR NO GOOD WITH WIRES PLEASE STOP HERE AND FIND SOMEONE THAT DOES...............

Ok first you can unplug your battery if you feel like it, i didnt, but thats all up to you, just adding it in there





Next get in the car and look for these three screws under the steering collum, they should come outta these three holes on the bottom







Then take a flat head and separate the top and bottom pieces apart, it wont break there just clips holding it together





Then look for these two screws on the turn signal switch, they come from this area right here, there is a little push clip holding it in once the screws are removed, IT WAS A PAIN TO REACH, so i just gave up and gave it a strong pull and out came the turn signal switch lol







Unplug the connector on the back and this is what it should look like





Ok now grab the flat head again and pop the side console out, its the one with the sunroof button in it, "yes i know my cruise is upside down its an inside joke" lol lol





Pull the cheapo fog switch out, mine was half broken anyway and it should have a green tab on it





Next go back to the turn signal switch pin holder thing and tap in two wires in the top left side "they are the slighter bigger blue wires, you can see witch ones they go in, i just cut the ends some, pushed it in and bend the metal part of the wire inside so they wouldnt just fall out, and when the switch gets pushed in it should really hold it, but just in case i zip-tied the wires to the factory wires so there no chance of them slipping out





Here are some shots of the factory one vs crv one









Go back to the ebay wire switch thing, take it off and you should see 4 wires coming out, with mine i had to cut the two middles wires, i just tucked the switch back behind the dash when i had cut them





Here are the two cut middle wires





Now connect those two the two blue wires you tapped off of the turn signal switch, you can connect them this way to see if everything works properly, test them this way cause if the wires have to swapped just swap them if your fogs are on when on the off switch, but if its off and the fogs are off its wired correctly, then wire connect them together then crimp the wires like this







Now put everything back together following the reverse of this "if you cant get it back together thats pretty sad" but re-read the beginning if you need help, and here are some finished pictures, i needed to remove the ebay fog so i could install my purge button for my nitrous









And of course since this was the HARDEST thing in world to do, once you finish sit back and crack open a nice ice cold beer and relax……. Lol lol lol lol lol

Res for questions and answers

Which switches will work, and where can i find one??

you have to just find one on ebay or go to the dealership because all models didnt come with the fog light add on for the switch, all these models will work though if you can find one with the fog light switch add on >>> 03-08 PILOT, 07-08 FIT, 02-06 CR-V, and 03-08 ELEMENT switch

Whats the part number for the switch??

The part number for the combination switch with the fog light switch is: 35255-S5K-F12.

How much does the switch cost??

Retail is about $100. Discounted retail is about $70 + shipping. eBay: $35 shipped, sold by alphaautomotive. Linked. I just bought one off of eBay, so 8 more remains.

That's pretty baller. Only question I have is do they turn off then hi beams get turned on? I always thought that was stupid, why mine are wired to corner markers.

Nice. Yeah so many things I could have D.I.Y but didn't feel like snapping pics. I would want the wiring to appear stock more than just rigged to work if that makes sense. IDK

lol. Nice tip...

Yeah The 02-04 is unique and I have a soft spot for it too. It's the original DC5. Im sure I'll be happy with the 05-06 too though

I was looking for the turn signal you used... and I was only able to find this part (#13).

35255-S5A-A02



It doesn't seem to have the fog light switch though. Could you direct me to the right switch?

Thanks for the info!

Yea i had the same problem, you have to find one with the fog light light switch cause all models didnt come with fog lights, only ones that were pre-ordered with fogs

You just have to search, these are the models that you can look up to find one with fogs that fit in our cars 03-08 PILOT, 07-08 FIT, 02-06 CR-V, and 03-08 ELEMENT switch...... if you find a switch outta those with the fog light add on it will work
