Now I totally misunderstood you.Sorry for resurrecting an old post, but I knew that after three days of searching, I'd find it the moment I posted the question.

You are correct. Ultimately, I do want to get my hands on a real switch to see the circuit board. I was able to confirm some things with that page in the FSM, but I'd still like to see what the circuit board looks like to remove all doubt, hopefully without paying $300-$350 for one of the three currently available on eBay.Now I totally misunderstood you.
I thought you wanted to see what the "circuit board" looked like in the switch,
So all you did want is a wiring diagram.
Unless I am misunderstanding you now.
What each wire in a Ext Idle pigtail does is well documented on the internet.
I will show you one but only if you tell me how jealous you are of my Ext Idle switch. LOLYou are correct. Ultimately, I do want to get my hands on a real switch to see the circuit board.

Words cannot express the gratitude and jealousy... Thank you!!I will show you one but only if you tell me how jealous you are of my Ext Idle switch. LOL
Got links to the other 2?Words cannot express the gratitude and jealousy... Thank you!!
(and correction on my previous post, looks like someone snagged one of the three on eBay, only two left at $299 each!)
As you should be. LOL.This item number on eBay says qty of 2 available in the same post:

Haven't posted enough to earn the right to use the url tags...
And still jealous by the way.....
Well I am going to let you in on a little secret.Insanely jealous. Because you have a factory switch AND bezel....and I don't. . But I'm not $299 jealous.
Nicely done! I've had my eye on the eBay for stuff from the UK too, I'm in search of the elusive 4 bay bezel but I might go for a 3d printed one and add more switches.Well I am going to let you in on a little secret.
But you can't tell anybody. LOL.
While that is a Mopar 4 slot bezel it is not an American one.
See XJ's in the UK and over there in Europe have rear fog lights.
Like it is a law or something over there.
Well when they have fog lights and rear fog lights in an XJ guess how many switches are in the bezel?
You guessed it.
So I sourced a 4 slot bezel from over there. Came with the all the switches.
Now it is not a perfect solution. The fog light switch goes in the slot third from the left.
The rear fog light switch is in the 4th position.
See switches have these keyways on the side of them that correspond to slots in the bezel.
Keeps them from putting a switch in the wrong position.
So both the Ext Idle switch and the fog light switch wanted to go in the 3rd position.
Not wanting to mess with the Ext Idle switch I ground the keyway off the fog light switch.
Also so you know a fog light pigtail can be used with an Ext Idle switch.
You just need to grind off the keyway on the pigtail and instead of hooking it up by wire color you use wire position.
I also had an idea for the rear fog light switch that came with the bezel.
See I put an overhead console in my '00 that did not come with one.
This guy 3D prints this 4 slot bezel that goes in the garage door opener area.
Uses factory switches.
So I want to put some lights up front, some in the rear, and maybe some more down the road.
So I thought using a rear fog light switch for the rear lights would be cool.
Notice how the symbol is reversed.
But a rear fog light switch acts different then a fog light switch. It is not just an on/off but kinda spring loaded like a rear wiper switch.
So I used the toggle part only and the rest is a regular fog light switch.
Now this project is not done. Still need to wire up an aux fuse box and find a central location for my relays.
I did buy the lights I am using up front but not the rear ones yet.
Only mocked things up and did some prep work so far.
There was this guy on another forum I am on who made them and you could buy them through shapeways.com.PM me with the source of your 3d printed overhead bezel, that's nice, I've ben considering adding that for the additional lighting I have planned for the XJ.
I thought I recognized it. If found him a couple of weeks ago when I first started down the EXT Idle path. There are a couple others out there doing 3D printing of these, but I agree these seem to look the most like stock with the pebble grain finish.There was this guy on another forum I am on who made them and you could buy them through shapeways.com.
He has not been active for quite sometime over there but his stuff can still be bought.
I think he might have been the first to come up with 3D printed bezels for XJ's.
