    I was looking into this too mate, i believe I need a latching relay to do it though. May look for another kind of mechanical sport switch

    If the sport switch is the "Semi-Active Damping" switch, then the pins are: -

    There is no mention of SPORT switch on the TIS wiring diagrams, however this switch does affect the "settings" of the suspension on the rear stub axles.

    pin 1 - Blue/white to BCM pin 71 = Funtion is "On" warning light on switch.

    pin 2 - Grey/Yellow to BCM = Back lighting wire

    pin 5 - Brown = Switch and illumination Ground

    pin 6 - blue/yellow to BCM pin 70 = On/Off momentary contact switch

    Regarding switching an external device, then you would indeed need to run the switch in conjunction with a latching relay.

    The complex bit is to get the relay to unlatch from the same inpulse voltage / switch....needs a little fiddly circuit to flip-flop the latching / unlatching circuit.

    To have it just light up do i just connect pin 2 to earth and 5 to ignition live then??????

    Yes, just connect up the grey/ yellow to a light feed or to the same colour wire of a neighbouring switch and then connect the brown to a good earth.

    Take the blank out and see if the connector is already there.
    If it is, then it's just plug and play...sometimes these connectors are in, just not connected for function, or not programmed in.
    Same situation as the ESP switch usually.
    I put the ESP / TC switch in my car for the "look" of it...the switch lights up, but doesn't do anything in my case.
