Default Mystery Switch

New to me 2009 SX4. Great little car!

Can't for the life of me figure out what this switch does. The one on the right.



Anyone have any ideas?

What you're asking about is an aftermarket accessory switch, so your guess is probably better than anyone else's, if only because you're there with the vehicle and we're not.

Option 1 - flip it and see what goes off (it was in the ON position when the photograph was taken).
Option 2 - get under the dash and trace the wiring.

That looks suspiciously like my GV's alarm Valet switch.

Welcome aboard too.

I'd say it looks like the 0 switch, though it's difficult to say for sure due to the picture size.
Leme dl it and . . . . . . .




Mmmmm, still can't say, I know it's NOT the ? switch though.

Previous owner probably had some auxiliary lights hooked up to the vehicle. If they are no longer installed on the vehicle, it may just be a blank switch (left there so it wouldn't be an open hole). Check the back of the switch and see if there is still waiting connected. If so, trace it!

Yeah, somehow autocorrect changed to "waiting"... Noticed that after I submitted the post, then realized it appears this particular forum doesn't allow users to edit their own posts? Or at least I cannot see the button for it...? So, it is what it is, unless a mod feels the need to edit and spell correct my post.

Haha, no offense taken!

But, I do not have that button visible on any of my posts. Either it is because I am a new member, or a feature only available to paid members.
Only have the various quote and reply buttons.
