Question about switch on dash

Fellow Forders,

I've just acquired a SMB pre-owned 2007 Ford E-350 (Jones'), but i'm back in FL now, and have forgotten what the 3-position switch with indicator light does ? [ Lower right dash below cigarette lighter ]

Getting 'er lined up out for a trip back out West soon.

Thanks for any comments,
seasmith

Re: Question about switch on dash

I think a picture might help. Far too many variables to ID it without more info.

Yeah, and a pic of all the other switches you know... might need to be a process of elimination. Get some general shots of the van while you're at it...

OK
Got some pics loaded on to the computer, just need to suss out best way to upload them to this forum.

BTW, it's a V-10 E-350 with the SMB West Transformer conversion, (which i think is no longer done).
Full CW, or full CCW, lights the little indicator lamp mounted below the dashpot. Center position has the light go off.

Re: Question about switch on dash

Image attached, i think. Seems to be a delay between posting showing up on the topic thread.

The rotary switch is the small dark item at bottom center-right of picture.
The indicator light is a 1/4" round spot installed on the lower ledge of the instrument panel above the switch.

Two other pics in my gallery.

Happy Easter weekend,
seasmith

I'm stumped. The indicator light is similar to my alarm light, but on the other side of the column. The fact it has 3 postions is ... ??? I'd guess front fogs and rear fogs with off in the middle, since you have the Aluminess bumpers- but it looks nothing like any of my switches.

What happens when you turn it? Oh...

Did you lose the original owners phone number?

Re: Question about switch on dash

Jage,

Thank you for forum info.

Turned left or right, a high-pitched beep sounds for a couple seconds. Guess it's built in radar, which i never heard go off for 700 miles from Austin to P'cola; but then i can't hear my cell phone when on highway either...
So why three position ?

Too many moving parts, too few brain cells.


Don't have orig owner's #, it was SMB consignment, but will make calls Monday.
Just thought i'd practice up on this forum thing over the weekend, in case somebody else has a similar build.
cheers

Re: Question about switch on dash

Jeffrey,

I like the idea of your storage cabinet on the left-side door.
Is it custom-made or OEM ?

Re: Question about switch on dash

If you are talking about the cabinet mounted on the smaller side door, it is an SMB optional item.

They may be able to retrofit to an existing van. Ask when you call them on Monday.

Mike
