The switch that says A/T (N/P) is basically an extra "boost". When using the highway, turn it to P for faster acceleration because it changes the gear timing. During normal stop-n-go driving, turn it to N.

As for the red switch, I have no idea.

actually it does not add any 'boost'. All a/t switch does is to *slightly* change the shift points of the trans. 'N' means normal and 'p' means power.. On my XL7 I cannot feel any difference. same shift points.. Generally the power is for towing as it is sopposed to raise the shift points by a few hundred rpm. On th ehighway it makes no difference because you are gong to be in top gear anyway..
The other switch is aftermarket that a previous owner installed. It can control anything.. Maybe fog lights??
