I bought my truck used a while ago and today i was up under the dash just looking around and i found 2 switches...plain jane switches and very small...they each only have 2 wires going to each of them, and just on, off options..theres no extra lights or a stereo on the truck or ever any signs of them being on the truck..i was just wondering if any one knew a way to find out wat they are or have any idea what they could be...one switch seems to go up to the dash but im not really feeling like taking the dash off to follow the wire...:confused:

I do not know if this is the case, but I bought a truck once that had a similar setup and the previous owner had made a toggle switch to shut off odometer. It was an electrical nightmare, but he did it. I hope that this is not your case.

Maybe you have a remote start on there and they didn't give you the remote?? It could be just about anything.
