1989 Ford Econoline F150 Camper Van (radon tooggle switch/button)


Was cleaning out Halen (get it? Van Halen) and I noticed a random toggle switch on the lower right section of the steering column. There is a button as well in the same area, on the opposite end. Tried switching and pressing then both in alternating patterns a few times and nothing happened. Does anyone know what these do or used to do?Botton on left. Toggle switxh on right
After digging through all of the vehicles manuals, I found that the switch could possibly be a parking indicator switch which was made for the bus models only

But i still dont know what this spring loaded button does. Anyone?

Itís probably aftermarket installed. You can only trace down wiring to figure it out.

Toggle switch and button are aftermarket, not genuine Ford.

Those look like the the type of switches that I had on a turbo timer.
