    Hello all,

    I have this switch next to my cruise control switches that I have no idea what the hell it is. Its the switch on the far right. It looks like a picture of a vehicle changing lanes? A lane change alarm? Adaptive cruise control?

    2009 T-660.

    thanks in advance!

    It already has a traction control switch. A switch with a tire and the letters TC.

    Not traction control. It's to disable the "Lane Departure Warning" system,. Usually only until the next engine start.

    It's used when it's raining or snowing or construction and the system is freaking out and keeps beeping when you are staying in your lane.

    Don't have the luxury of a operation Manual. Plus I got all you wizards to answer questions. Well it must not work anyway it never beeps when I drift lanes.

    Yea, I just looked and LDW didn't come out for Kenworth until 2010. My guess is some shop had the button laying around and put it in to cover a blank hole. I can think of a few reasons it's there and all are wild speculation, but the symbol is for the LDW system. That's all that symbol is used for.
