What is the switch on the left side of the dashboard?
« on: September 09, 2018, 11:00:18 pm »
I was just curious what the small round switch with the yellow LED on it was for. Does it have something to do with the red LCD above it?

Neither one appears to do anything right now, so they just not be too important... it’s a 2000 C10

They must have been put there by the previous owner...nothing like that on my 2002...maybe heated grips?

don't push that button man... I SAY DON'T.... DON'T DO IT......
it controls the " Improbability Drive"

I just watched that movie 2 nights ago......

"What to do if you find yourself stuck with no hope of rescue: Consider yourself lucky that life has been good to you so far. Alternatively, if life hasn't been good to you so far—which, given your present circumstances, seems more likely—consider yourself lucky that it won't be troubling you much longer."

nah, press it... then remove the buttons and wires... they were for p/o's driving lights, and fog lights, that got removed...

I’ll probably just leave them there... otherwise I’ll have a couple sizable holes in the panel. Plus I can just tell people that’s the turbo. 😬

BE CAREFUL.  It might activate the Oscillation Overthruster, which could kick you into the 8th Dimension.  Serious consequences there dude.

 :)) :)) :))

you missed my post/link Nosmo....

I would still suggest getting in behind that panel, disconnecting any wires there, and isolate/trace them back to where they go... and disconnect and seal or remove them all...
don't need 'spare hot wires' floating around, unattached... just waiting for a chance to short out, and cause you a flame on, or midnight roadside repair.. if you get my drift...

My guess would be 1) grip heaters; 2) aux driving lights; 3) fan thermostat switch over ride.

1. Look closely at the grips to see if you see any leads protruding out from under them back near the switch clusters.
2. If they've been removed, who knows.
3. Look at the wiring on the thermostat switch on the backside of the radiator through the LH panel vent hole for any spliced in wiring.

If nothing evident from any of the above, agree that pulling the left hand inner panel to try and 'cess out any wiring that may have been left behind.
