Moved lots of my buttons around, a little filing of the lugs and they pop straight in.

I bought a button from a breakers yard and used it to add a second CHRG button:

If you push the outside unlocking button twice in quick succession you can open the boot silently manually. Push close by hand as well without beep.

None of the EXTRA plugs that are unused can be used to add features. Mitsubishi, to save costs, build every car as a high spec, with a high spec harness, and just dont add the extra switches. i.e. if you wanted to add parking sensors to your basic Outie, you would need a new switch and harness, the factory fitted one cannot be used.

Many of the plugs on the blank buttons are 4 pin, that's 12v and earth for the led illumination, and two wires for the momentary-make when you press the button.

So take the plug off a blank 4 pin button for a function you will never add to the car, ideally one in or close to where you want your new button to be located - all the buttons are described in the Manual.

Cut the two momentary-make wires, and insulate the ends you don't need.

You now have a plug with the led powered, and two trailing wires for the momentary-make function.

I spliced a twin-core cable into the momentary-make wires of the CHRG button, so it still works, and attached the other end of the cable to the trailing wires on the plug.

The cable runs through the centre console and up into the dash, the console and armrest bin come out fairly easily.

The trim down the windscreen pillar has only one or two screws and pops out easily too.

The existing wiring for the CHRG button frustratingly does already go up behind the speedo according to the wiring diagrams,, but even with a colour code it will be hard to find it.

I use the small control on the steering wheel with my thumb to do this plus Regen set at B5, so I can move my thumb to cancel Cruise if braking needed.
