    Hey guys, I'm in another truck for a couple days I haven't seen these kinds of switches..
    I'm pretty sure the lock and susp switches need to be flipped off before driving, but I'm unsure about the parkedRegen switch.. PXL_20210114_182950743.jpg

    Parked regen switch . If u get the regen light on ur dash then u hit that switch when ur parked to star a regen.. the suspension switch is to dump the air out of ur bags... the lock switch looks to be a power divider , u want that unlocked when going down the road..

    Don't the newer trucks have a push in that pops out like air brakes for the divider nowadays?

    Yeah leave that off if you plan on going into high divider gears.

    Suspension dump is off. Press the bottom to dump...green light will come on... flip it back to re-air the Suspension...

    PDL is unlocked now. Press the bottom to lock..... green light will come on.... flip it back to unlock...

    Parked regen leave it alone unless the dash saids parked regen required then use it to start a parked regen

    I'm not sure how new "newer" is to you, but I've driven trucks from 2007 model to 2018 model and multiple years between. All of the trucks I've driven are just a toggle switch.
     
    Bean Jr. and flood Thank this.

    That engine brake switch you see in the pic is
    just the high/medium/low switch

    The engine brake ON/OFF switch is
    on the steering wheel....!!
