View Full Version : Strange button O_O

08-19-2008, 09:07 AM
Ok, this is probably a very noob question, so i'm sorry...but can anyone tell me what the button on top of the steering column is for? It's right above the windsheild wiper stalk, on the left, (rhd model), behind the steering wheel...i press it but nothing happens...and the sticker next to it is in Japanese, the only thing I understand is "On/Off"...

i'm trying to sit and imagine but i have no idea what your talking about. maybe pictures would help?

Will take picture tomorrow...But it's a button that's right behind the steering wheel but still on the steering column...on the TOP side of the column to the left... (the same side as the lever that adjusts the rake)...you can't see it when you sit, you have to look downwards from above the steering wheel..

A pic will help. I have no idea what your talking about except my car has a cruise control on the steering wheel.

yea i dont have it

Maybe it's something with the parking lights. I know I've seen it in a weird spot before. Does the car have daytime running lights? It could be a DRL override. Just guessing, I have not seen a Celica with that switch.

it cant be the hazards. the hazards are right near the clock. only thing button i can think of behind the wheel on the upper left is the fog light button. maybe its an aftermarket switch?

My car has auto tilt away.

Post pictures...I want to see that.

Ok, apparently it does work..it just required a good thump due to being unused for years...anyway, here's the picture...i have to say i'm a tiny bit disappointed, cuz i thought the auto tilt would be all cool and motorized and not just flip up with a crash...oh well...

i hate how japan holds out on us...

08-21-2008, 02:10 PM
anyone know what it says on the sticker?

08-21-2008, 02:27 PM
So basically this does the same thing as the lever on the US cars....


08-22-2008, 03:02 PM
No, I have the lever too...you mean the one to adjust the tilt, yea? This button is just to turn on the auto tilt-away...unfortunately mine is rubbish and only works sometimes..

Idiot Stick
