I have a button on the console of my 87 56SEC, and I can't figure out what it does. It is located between the two heated seat buttons, right above the shifting lever. It has a pictogram like:

------- ____--------l
l l___---- l
l l l
l l___ l
l l ----____ l
------- --------l

As anyone can see the window resized and the sketch messed up. The pictogram resembles a side view of a square attached to a bullhorn.

Is it a button or a roller? Button- higher pitched horn vs lower pitched? Roller-speaker control for front vs. rear?

Maybe someone here has an operators manual.

Good luck,

Button or a knob? If a knob, I'd suspect the fader control knob for your stereo.

Mike, fz500sel has one of these rocker switches, operating it changes the sound of the horn.
