What is this

Post by Wheelburr »



I have an '82 Interstate. I am in the process of getting my am/fm working. Can anyone tell me what this on/off button is for as I haven't a clue? Thank you in advance to those who reply!

I really reaching back but I recall a button,that when pushed on,activated the ejector seat or the radio "ambience" function.
I think mine operated the latter.It artificially widens the sound.

That's not a stock Honda item. It's not in any documentation or manuals I own or have seen. Definitely an aftermarket add-on.

What is it wired to?
Have a nice day! :)

I think it is for my intercom system. Two black cables from radio go into the small box with this switch. There are two cables come out of this box, one with plug in for operator and the other is wired for passenger. Hey, thanks for the reply.

Whatever it is it has full service instructions right there. Just need to follow the wires.
