    Any help in finding the right switch would be appreciated.

    I am looking for a On - Off - On switch that looks as OEM as possible and must fit the small OEM switch hole. So far my search has not provided me a good option.

    I know I can use an adruino or possibly a timer relay (maybe) to achieve the desired results but would much rather have a simple switch solution and want to stay with the OEM look and small switch size.

    Thanks in advance!!

    Edit: For those trying to help me, I am looking to be able to turn lights on, off, and auto with a single switch. Hence the search for a DPDT. I have been able to find the small push switch that fits the OEM hole, just none with more than on-off or momentary function.

    Tried to find what I wanted on both sites and do not see the size and type combination I am looking for.

    Thanks for the assistance.

    Correction, I am in need of a SPDT, though a DPDT would also fulfill my needs/wants.

    I'm looking for this too, in momentary. I have a "toyota small switch" form factor hole I want to control my winch off of, and I think I'm going to just end up putting a momentary SPDT surface mount switch in a blank. There's nothing out there that is factory-looking and will rock two directions with the middle off. :frusty:

    https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01DD9MA7A is the closest I could find, but it doesn't fit.

    Yup, that is exactly the issue I am finding. The tall switch there are a several options, but I can find nothing but the push on-off for the small switch hole.

    I am actually considering either doing a 2 switch and relay build, or dropping in 2 smaller rockers sideways in the hole. then wire those to the relays. The only other thing I can think of is using an Adruino with a momentary switch to differentiate between pushes to choose a state.

    I have never used Adruino.

    If that winds up being my solution, I will have to learn how to program the thing. That will be a learning experience and may take me a bit to figure out.

    I have bought several dpdt's with the correct dimensions for the 'larger' opening on the right side. The problem is that they have systems for keeping the switch in place that are too big to slide into the opening. So, I've bought a bunch of switches with the correct dimensions that don't fit.

    I'm about to drill a hole and just use a toggle.
