This is my second switch after the factory recall which was poorly done. This switch has heavier duty wires in the connector and the switch operates vevy smoothly. It seems to be better quality than the other switch i used. Time will tell if its 5 stars for now i give it 4

Does the wires come with it?

BEST ANSWER: Yes it does. The pigtail has to be spliced into the original harness, which replaces the original connector.
