Switches on panel next to steering column.

Does anyone know what all the switches are next to the steering column. One is for Hella driving lights, fog lights, backup lights and I can't figure out what the other one is used for.
I know there all probably different on each SMB.

Re: Switches on panel next to steering column.

"The other one" is probably your high-idle. With the van in park, and running put in the e-Brake and flip the switch. Wait a few seconds (20?) and the idle should jump in RPMs.

Re: Switches on panel next to steering column.

This was a common location for the ExtremeAir compressor switch. Remember that the ignition needs to be "on" (preferrably with the engine running because of the high amp draw of the compressor) to operate the ExtremeAir compressor.

-or- That's not a switch, it's the 4wd light!

Are you ever going to tell us who was right?
