Default 04 turn signal switch in an 01?

I recently got an 04 turn signal switch, I was told it would be a direct swap into an 01. When I got mine apart, it had different plugs in the back. Is there anyway to mod this turn signal switch to work or am I SOL?

Are you talking 'bout the multifunction switch?
I thought most of them were interchangeable...

Yeah the switch itself on the left side of the steering column that puts your turn signals on and high beams and all that junk

there was a lot of wiring changes in 04. would probably be better to find one 03 or older. is there something special about the 04?

If I figure it out and get the plugs and the wiring down and figure out what re-pin means I'll give you my old one

pull the pins out of the connector and put them in new locations depending on where you need them.

swap the new switch's wiring pins into your older switch's wiring plug in their respective positions.

its surprisingly easy.. easier than an ohc or the stupid white face cluster that i still havent done yet.lol

all you have to do is find out what wires are what on the new switch and BAM swap them out to your old plug.
