What is this switch on captain's chairs?

I have no idea what this is. It's not a rocker switch, ie if you push I or II it returns to O (momentary switch?). 2004 MADP 40. It's on both the driver's and passenger's seats.

Should be lumbar inflation. It takes a while for the bladder to fill, so hold down the upper part of the switch for a few seconds. Often, it's so slow to fill you may not think it's working.

Thanks for this and all the other replies/guesses. There is a seat heater switch (on the front), so this isn't it. I'm guessing the lumbar inflation is right--the rig is in the shop getting some upgrades so I'll test this out when we get her back.

Seat heat; high, off, and low. See pic of mine; has a label for clarity. Engine must be on.

The switch with arrows is lumbar. The switch with the heat waves and chair logo is heat.
