Gotcha. I'll know more next week. I was just trying to get some ducks in a row.

I went 325 miles without it, which wasn't exactly fun, and I don't really want to do the remaining 586 miles without it.

Default Turn Signal Switch information

.
A few years ago when John Boudreaux was looking for a turn signal switch for his 91 WB, he posted that his old switch had the letters “SWF” and the number “201.880” on it. At that time I did a little research on “SWF” which led me to a German Company called:

“Spezial Werkzeugfabrik Feuerbach” ... Am I allowed to say that on here?

With a little more digging I found that “Spezial Werkzeugfabrik Feuerbach”(SWF) was part of the Valeo Group. (For what it’s worth, I suspect that may be where the “Volvo” recollection came from).

More research on the 201.880 part number led me to believe that a Valeo 201.880 was in fact the correct turn signal switch for my 91 WB.

I ended up buying a spare “New Old Stock” B.B# 1406065 Wanderlodge turn signal switch on EBay so I never took the Valeo search far enough to find out whether I could actually locate and buy a Valeo 201.880 turn signal switch or not. This is old information so it could have changed but here’s the information that I collected at the time:

“COMMERCIAL VEHICLE SYSTEMS VISION AND SAFETY GROUP”

CVS is the North American Distributor for Valeo Rocker Switches from Valeo Switches & Detection Systems of Bietigheim, Germany. We are proud to bring our customers the durability and adaptability of Valeo Universal Rocker Switches.

Contact our engineering staff to learn how these fine products can be designed into your next heavy vehicle project. See our other product lines at:

The specs and circuit diagram for a Valeo 201.880 turn signal switch can be found in this catalog:

http://admin1.rapidfirecms.com/~fry/pdfs/DAlen_catalogue.pdf

The 1992 Wanderlodge Quick Reference Catalog listed two different part numbers for turn signal switches – 1406065 and 1399195… Just a guess but from the pictures, it looks like the only difference may have been that one was pre-wired with connectors ready to plug in and the other one wasn’t.

I was using your information John and found one of these switches on ebay (the 1399195) They have one left and it is $58.49 or make offer. These as you say are very hard to find so here is one for someone needing it. Good luck!!!!!!!!!

I didn't think it would last long. It was a super price and hard to find.

I don't know what you guys offered or paid but even at the $58.49 asking price you should have been wearing a mask when you bought those!

What a deal!

John,
I took a shot and got it for $40 plus shipping to me in Florida. Never know when that part will fail and would be very hard to find.
