Driver's door window switch

I have a Canadian market 2016 CX3 GT; it has the one-touch down and up window control for the driver's door window. Is that feature software driven, or a function of the switch itself? I would like to control the front passenger side window the same way - from the driver's position - and am wondering if replacing the window control switch will be sufficient. If it's going to be more complicated than that, then I'll abandon my thoughts..... Related to this nonsense, is it likely there are different wiring harnesses for the myriad world markets that would prevent my replacing the switch in the passenger door? I'm thinking that you Brits would already have the proper harness connectors inside our passenger/your driver's door if everybody's wiring is the same. Thanks. geoff

I can’t answer your question - I don’t know if anyone else can. If you take the steering wheel paddles as an example, they can be added to a CX5 and they just plug and play but I’d hate you to go to lots of expense to find it doesn’t work.

Currently CX5 SportNav 2.2 diesel automatic and AWD.
Formerly CX3 SportNav 1.5 diesel automatic and AWD.

Yes, I would assume the control is in the switch ... which appears to come as a complete assembly for all four windows, Part No. DB4G-66-350 ... surely not assembled in-house, outsourced from some small electrical shop in the shadow of Mazda's Zoom-Zoom Stadium :-)

Just over $220 retail, $160 online ... or $40 on eBay, from recycling yards.

You should/might be able to swap your right for the donor left ... no doubt, others have done this ... I'd start with mazdas247.com and then move to other makes.

P.S. Her HR-V has automatic/one-touch on all four windows ... but I don't think I'd switch just for that ;-)

I think the control is at least partially software driven, and I think this because of a strange issue I have had multiple times...

During my audio build I have had the battery disconnected and connected numerous times, and the one-touch-down function has stopped working many times. Actually, right now is one of those times... Last week I had the battery disconnected and since then I have had to hold the button down. I know that if I go disconnect and reconnect the battery (like a quick reset) it will work again.

Imho, if it was only a function of the switch it would be impossible for it to work intermittently like that.

Hope that helps...

Yes, page 101 of the pdf version of my Owner's Manual gives the "fully up, full down" reprogramming procedure ... but it seems to me it would be more logical/simpler if unique to the switch ... i.e., the "programming" is done within the switch.

You could always try taking out your switch and fiddling with the connections ... left switch to the right window, etc.

Note: A good economist would simply assume, cśteris paribus, the right window has the auto function, and be done with it ;-)

You know what? I should read my owners manual sometimes too!

You know I would never, ever use today's kids' language and ask the Dr. of Decibels, Hertz, and Sine Waves to RTFM :-)

Thank you, Forum members, for your responses. I think I'll check out the harness connectors first, to determine the feasibility of an 'upgrade' then go from there.

I think the switch will be a simple connect/disconnect and everything else is down to the body control module programming.
