2001 ultrasport mystery dash switch

MY 2001 DAMON ULTRASPORT HAS A SWITCH TO THE RIGHT OF THE FUEL GAUGE JUST BELOW THE LOWER AIR GAUGE.
IT IS A SPRING LOADED BLACK ROCKER SWITCH THAT IS MOUNTED HORIZONTAL AND ACTIVATES WHEN PUSH TO THE LEFT.
I HAVE VERIFIED THAT IT HAS WIRES CONNECTD TO IT BUT I AM UNABLE TO VERIFY WHAT IT CONTROLS OR WHAT ITS FUCTION IS.
CAN ANYONE SHED SOME LIGHT ON THIS MYSTERY SWITCH?
I HAVE ATTACHED A PICTURE FOR CLARITY.
THANKS
Chris.

:Welcome:

Do you notice a voltage change when the switch is activated? Since it's not a Carling switch to match the others visible on the dashboard, I'd say it was added by a previous owner. You'll have to trace the wires to figure out its purpose, I'm afraid. You might also try it after dark, with someone else outside, see if any lights come on or blink.

Welcome to iRV2.

Do I see a Freightliner gauge package , if so here's the switch info.


Trip odometer reset button, momentary push will set , trip to zero , three seconds will toggle the read out of the trip and regular odometer from US to metric.
