    Switching day or night for you . If you drive at night and flip the switch - its day again :)!

    I bet that’s got something to do with your instrument display, just guessing on that one.

    Had a buddy that bought a new Kenworth W900 in 2007 that had a night and day switch. If I remember correctly, He said it had to do with the marker lights and how they would blink when you'd push the interrupt switch.

    some of my western stars have the same switch, it is to turn off the daylight running lights when the truck is running without the headlights on like when hunting a truck stop parking stop.
