    I am wanting to control the power windows in my truck with one spst momentary switch. I know I could easily use two but I want to be unique. If anyone could give me any ideas or things to look into I am not scared of researching ideas. I have looked into a few ICs and most seem to just pulse and that will not work for this application. I was thinking of using a counter IC but I don't know how to implement the momentary part.

    I want to hold the one momentary switch down to roll the window down and then next time I hold the same momentary switch down it will roll the window up.

    Thanks in advance

    This can be done easily with DPDT relays and a couple of micro switches / reed switch.
