If you power the switch by a switch source, then it will turn "off" when the car is off. You could likely remove the part that latches it "on" so it becomes momentary.

I was thinking about that but the issue is that these switches have two different positions, on and off, like a pen.

If I can take the guts out of another switch and modify it to work with the 6th dash switch then I think I will be able to accomplish what I am looking for.

You could easily add a relay that would interrupt current when the key is off.

So if the switch is on then whatever is hooked to it would turn on and off with the key.

If the funk switch is left on, or the switch is "turned on" with the car off, then the cut outs will run an open cycle when the car is turned on.

Sean, you have your cut outs run a close cycle when the car is first started, but what happens if you have left your "FUNK" switch on when you shut off your car and then turn it?

No, it is an on/off switch, it latches into position and stays there until you "unlatch" it. Sounds just like the taxi switch.

I have a question for anyone with a "FUNK" switch. Does it behave like the defroster button in that it will default back to off when the car is turned off? I just installed my "TAXI" switch and unless I turn it off it will stay on since it is a double position switch like the hazards.

Hey now, if it were the 1970's I could use that FUNK switch for a disco mirror ball hanging from my headliner.

I am so lucky that you have a fetish of having OEM parts that function properly and make sense with your car

I've got one, going to Ken, in trade for a Taxi switch.

You gotta keep lookin' on Passat World, that's really the only place to find it........and you have to have good timing to find it and buy it before someone else does.........and you have to be willing to pay for it, I paid $75 for mine.
