2019 Jimny – what switches go where?
tl;dr: 32x22mm short Toyota switches for dashboard, 35x19mm for centre console
One of the joys of owning something like the Jimny is the ability to modify it how you see fit. A huge part of these modifications are adding accessories that might need some control in the form of switches.
There’s two sized switches used in the interior of the Jimny: short Toyota sized switches for the push switches in the dashboard, and also some almost-but-not-exactly-tall-Toyota switches used in the centre console (I think for heated seats in European models).
To record switch info I’ve pulled together the following table including other options that you might use if you go a bit more custom with mounting switches. The model list is so you can use ebay to buy appropriate switches if needed, but it is not meant to be an exhaustive list of models. Also, most of my information has been gathered from the Australian market so other cars available overseas might have different switch options.

Dash switch illumination
A common question asked by people installing aftermarket switches in the dashboard is how to source an appropriate feed for the switch illumination. The easiest option is to directly tap into the illumination of one of the existing factory switches. Behind each factory switch is a 5 pin connector, the red wire should be the illumination wire. That’s at least according to the wiring diagram I have handy.
The more in depth option would be to source the correct plugs for the dash switches (Sumitomo 6098-3810 and 6098-3802 for both the male and female plugs) and make up a short nice piggyback harness.
