Cool Power Window Switch Question

Just a technical question, now that I fixed the window switch for the 2005 Dream Cruiser convertible.

I was planning on worst case scenario, and looked at a few sites and eBay for a replacement switch.
I may even still order one, considering the boggering up (Busa) that I did with the switch to get it working again. Just to have a back-up. (When you have a vert...once the top is down and you put it back up; the window switch is critical.

Most of the switches that I am seeing reasonably priced, look like Gen 2 switches, with the center toggle for safety locking the back windows of the hatch back.

The switch for my 2005 vert does not have that....nor are the switches lighted.
I believe that someone had posted about having trouble getting all the bells & whistles to work on window switches - and did their own lighting mod for the switches.

Here is the pic of mine.





So my question is..... can I use just about any switch?
I noticed that the cable coming into my switch has a lot more lead wires, than the number of spade contacts for my switch.
Can I used a replacement switch that is lighted; or has the extra safety lock switch for the rear windows?
The Chilton Manual does not go into that much detail.

I'm not sure if this old Thread answers my questions, as it is replacing a Gen 2 switch with a Gen one switch, just to get the longer toggles.
'05 dash master window switch?

My problem is going the other way...putting a Gen 2 switch in a Gen 1 to get the lights.

You can wire your own lights,need to PM Pappasmurf or ROCKETMAN;They added LEDs to their switches,and they are better then stock.
