My LTTS solution was really easy to implement (it took maybe 30-45 minutes).
What You will need:
two membrane switch keypad with 1 key (they should have a sticky side)
some goldpins and wires
QX30 sunshade harness connector (you can use the one from your current console) with 3 wires
GLA/CLA/etc... console with a sunglass storage
and some torx keys
On QX30 the sunshade switch have just 3 wires (from what I remember): Red (+12V), Green (Close) and Yellow (Open).
The Idea is to plug the Red+Yelow wires to one switch and Red+Green wires to another one.
How to steps:
Open the console
Cut and stick the membrane switches to the board (like I did)
Drill small hole for harness in console body
Connect/solder wires to switches (use goldpins if necessary): Red+Yellow (open) and Red+Green (close)
put it all together
btw. QX30 sunshade switch has no illuminated backlight, and the one from GLA/CLA has
Jag, thank you for explaining the steps in great detail. It looks like this would be a nice plug and play upgrade for the QX30 with no sunroof.
Unfortunately, we’re going to have to do without this upgrade in Holly. It’s a bit beyond the scope of my comfort with soldering/drilling, and I’m afraid of voiding the warranty. If you’re ever in town I’ll buy the sunglass console and hire you to install. LOL. Cheers!
