    Default Need some help identifying some rocker switches on the dash

    I've got an 03 Suburban LT and I need a little help. Mine has the two storage bins in the dash above the console. Immediately to the left of the bottom one (the deeper one) there are two round rocker switches that appear to be factory. The bezels around them are molded into the panel. Anybody have an idea of what these are for? I've switched them back and forth and don't notice anything happening.


    I apologize for not have pictures at the moment. I'll get some here in a little while so it will be more clear what I'm talking about.

    Sorry for the delay. I had to go out of town before I could get the pic posted. Here's what I've got.

    I downloaded the 2003 Suburban manual and there was no mention of those switches. I agree, they do look factory, but then again the manufacturer labels switches.

    I am sorry I cannot be of more help.

    I couldn't find them in the manual either. Wasn't sure if this was something that came in mid cycle or what.

    They are NOT factory... Do you have a DVD screen over head? If so it may be for a RF mod so you can hear the dvd's on your system Other then that take the panel off and see where they go..

    No DVD. I'm planning on doing that, just haven't gotten to it yet. They don't seem to be powered at the moment. It looks like there are little lights in the bottom of the switch but they don't light up when switched.

    We all suspect that they were added by a previous owner; therefore, the wiring should be somewhat easy to follow. Can you trace it to a source, or termination?
