What now makes it easy is that everything is installed in the car. All I have to do is pop the volume control out of the dash, unhook the wire to it and jump in the stalk of my choice. Once I find a stalk that is compatible I have to figure out how to mount it into the switch body.

The pisser is that I had the board modified properly at my first attempt, but because the stalks wouldn't work I assumed the board was still wrong.

And you are correct Sir, I would have gotten this far without your help. Props to you my friend!

Happy I did...

Went to the junk yard this morning and picked up a Pathfinder stalk. The Pathfinder wiper set-up uses an amplifier but it didn't work, it worked the same as the Maxima and Altima stalks. Now I'm starting to think there may be something special about the PHDM, EDM and JDM variable stalks.

Looks like some of these are showing up on eBay. This one says "RHD", but is obviously LHD. Wish they posted a pic of the back of the switch. It appears to have an additional function on the headlight stalk, and I can see a pigtail coming off the back. This one doesn't have the control for the rear wiper, so at a minimum, I'm guessing the guts of the wiper stalk/board could be transferred to the USDM switch body to add variable intermittent...
