A while back I installed a couple of LED rear facing lights on my Mauser cab. I temporarily wired them to the tractors light switch. They only come on with the upper forward facing cab lights. I want to rewire them independent of all other lighting. I want to install one in the factory location in the headliner as pictured. Does anyone know where I can purchase this switch? Thanks in advance for your assistance.

I believe the switch housing has a fuseholder integrated into it, as well. I've never seen another like it and I was in a related business for 30+ years. If you can pull one of the existing switches out and look for a manufacturer and other markings, that may lead to a source.

That being said, if you're not insistent upon it being a direct match and having an integrated fuseholder, you might be able to find a switch that would fit in the knockout opening. Once you have the dimensions, I'd start at digikey.com. They're online catalog is pretty intuitive and I believe you can filter the search by opening size.

Mystery solved. I pulled both the heater and wiper switches, finding that they are Britax Series #511 rocker switches. Now I'm just waiting for the manufacturer to get back to me via email to let me know which of their switches to purchase. Since they are in Europe, this will be the expensive route, but I want to match the existing factory switches. In the mean time, my JD dealer is looking into possibly securing the switch. JD has access to the Mauser rear light kit, which includes the matching switch. That being said, my dealer is thinking that they might be able to order just the switch.

Late last year, I ordered the switch through the dealer to fill the switch panels on both sides with all matching switches. The parts department at my dealer handled it and the part was here in a week or so. Seems like it was around $28 if memory serves me but I could have that confused with something else on that order. I really didn't pay much attention as I wanted the right switch. I think the switch rockers are illuminated in different colors, if I am not mistaken.

It is a nice stout switch which "feels good" when activated and the fuse holder is integrated right in the left part of the switch facia under the little hinged door which flips to the left. The switch snaps into the housing easily and is solid, yet easy to remove if necessary.

I added switches for revolving light, rear wipers, rear LED lights, extra roof perimeter roof safety lights, front wiper, heater fan and something else, I would have to look. All of the switch areas are now being used.....Nice switches and I really like the way the electrical is organized in the roof above the cab headliner. The roof panel is easily removed and everything is right there very orderly. Super easy to add other items and to select whether they are to be powered with the key, on another switch, etc.

I have had my roof panel off on a number of occasions, so I'm somewhat familiar with the electrical up there. I agree that it is nicely organized and I like the integrated fuse holder. I too, want all my switches to match. Just wondering if you could find your receipt with the JD part numbers? No big deal if you can't, as I'm sure my dealer will find them. Thanks, Greg

I think your dealer can get this. This looks just like the switch used in my HPX gator. They had a kit for extra forward and rear facing lights and each had a switch like that.

It is in the illustrated parts catalog. Go to shopgreendealer.com pick illustrated parts catalog search for your tractor model. Picking the series, newest with factory can, pick cab, and you can run through it.

I did same thing on Deere site, picked my dealer and had it shipped right to them. Free shipping that way. Paid when I picked it up. I had an empty switch holder, so just bought switch and sign for rear work light. I either cross referenced the part number to make sure it was the rear light symbol, or found the part numbers under rear work lights for Mauser cab. Either way, I got right one.
