    wiper stalk with trip buttons

    just got one of these as im replacing my TVR stalks with the cruise one and this one, but since i dont have the MFD that has the trip the 2 buttons will do nothing so i was wondering if i could wire them up to something else,

    i have a reverse camera that only comes on when reverse is engaged, but i was wondering if i could say hit the R button then the camera would engage and use the stalk like a toggle switch

    thanks

    No you can't, the switches are the push momentary type. You would need a latching type to switch the camera on permanently.

    No

    Couldn't find a relay anywhere when I did Pete's car 2 years ago
