Mystery Switch

Before I start digging behind this switch to see where the wires lead me, anyone know what it was likely used for? I know it's not stock. It has two turn knobs and an LED above. The larger/outer turn knob has 3 positions; left, middle, right. The smaller/inner turn knob turns smoothly, left to right like a volume knob on a CB or radio. It's the only switch I have that doesn't work and it's bugging me. The green switch to the left of it controls the Hella's, the red switch above controls the heated windshield. And the far left switch is the dash light dimmer.

Thanks in advance.
Keith

The CB has its own controls.

its the fluid drip adjuster ... you can set the frequency and type of drips ... everything from engine oil to brake fluid and if you hit the rear bias you can leak gas!

What's wrong with the green switch next to it? It controls the fog lights and works fine.

You need the proper fog light switch in order for us to accept you into the NYC boost crew. Like mine.

It does look exactly like an early K40 Radar Detector Switch.

It actually did have a front and rear radar detector system as well as an alarm that the PO disabled. Hmmm...
