Default Unknown Light Switch

It'* located on the "ceiling console." I'm sure it says in the owner'* manual what this does, but my owner'* manual is missing the first 89 pages which is where the description of this thing probably is since I can't find it anywhere else. It doesn't seem to turn any lights on or off.
My guess is that it activates the automatic dimmer for the rear-view mirror, but???

Very odd place to put a fog light switch. Thanks for the info. Any idea where I can get a complete owner'* manual? 1994 Bonne SSEi.

at the junkyard here the cars usually have them in the glove box or trunk... sometimes they will let you take them for free, or a few dollars.

if not, ebay.

Yep thats the fog lights alright. My 92 manual is falling apart. The pages just seem to let go from the glue binding. I think I still have the Bonneville cassette tape that came wit the car though. If only I had a cassette player...
