2006 GMC 5500. 6.6L Diesel. Allison 6sp Transmission.

The bottom two buttons in the picture.

Much appreciated.

Do you not have an owner's manual?
Link Posted: 2/24/2010 7:38:50 AM EDT
Left one looks like PTO. The right one I don't know. Amber Lamps?
Link Posted: 2/24/2010 7:39:17 AM EDT
The one on the left looks like it centrally locks the differential.  The one on the right....clutch start cancel switch maybe?

Eject and self destruct.

Those are the idiot eject buttons.  They wanted to make sure with you, so they put two in.

Government Motors secret agent man...The left is for go fast , the right is for passenger eject......

pto? diff lock? Never seen those before.
Link Posted: 2/24/2010 7:47:21 AM EDT
Owner's manual.  It's that "book" in the glove compartment.  Yes, I know, it has pages and printing and is not a computer screen, but that's how they did things back in the day.
Link Posted: 2/24/2010 7:48:47 AM EDT
First one is "FO Time", the second one is "I'm Foing".

Use with care, and blade to 45.

Link Posted: 2/24/2010 7:49:20 AM EDT
left is a central diff lock/tcase lock, the one of the right I would guess to be a back up sensor on/off ?
Link Posted: 2/24/2010 7:50:11 AM EDT
I'm going to go with left is PTO control and right is air suspension control. They look like rocker switches.

Kegarator defrost  and blender .

What ever you do don't push the buttons.... Its a GM it is likely to explode.
Link Posted: 2/24/2010 7:52:42 AM EDT
Think the left is diff lock and the right is descent control, maybe?  The ring and crescents are the same as on a parking brake symbol...
Link Posted: 2/24/2010 7:53:35 AM EDT
Right turn and ice cream.

Big trucks usually aren't four wheel drive... I doubt its a diff lock.
Link Posted: 2/24/2010 7:55:15 AM EDT
ejection seats.  You must have purchased the 007 edition from your dealer.  One of them is probably the hidden rocket launcher as well.

If it had an owners manual I wouldn't be asking.

Although, if I didn't get smart ass responses, it wouldn't be ARFCOM.

I've confirmed the left is a diff. lock. I'm hoping that the right one is a descent control.

Thanks for the help fellas.

I think PTO was removed from the Allison in 2005 or so ( to save a few bucks, wtf?) but it was available on chassis cab trucks and if that right toggle is a back up warning light he may have a chassis cab.

While at highway speeds, flip both repeatedly until something breaks,  then you know what they are

You should probably start a thread asking about it.

The one on the left is to disable NASCAR mode––it enables the vehicle to turn right.  The one on the right activates the GPS restaurant locator, as indicated by an ear of corn on a plate.

The one on the left is for the Flame thrower.

The one on the right is the Obama bumper sticker retaliation device.

You guys and your smart-assed, other-wordly answers!



GM did away with rocket pods as a concession in the last round of union talks, and switched from oil slicks to roofing nails after intensive market analysis back in ought-two.

Sheesh.
Link Posted: 2/24/2010 8:06:51 AM EDT
Left one is autopilot.  Right one is fleshlight.
Link Posted: 2/24/2010 8:08:57 AM EDT
Oil slick buttons.

One dumps the transmission fluid, the other dumps the engine oil.

Makes for fast getaways.

Anytime you see what looks like parentheses around a circle it is a brake system icon.

The puff of smoke in the middle indicates exhaust system.
Your truck has an exhaust brake installed (Jake Brake) it looks like.  Is that what you guys are calling "Descent Control"?

Thanks. I though that was it.

That could also be called descent control, correct?

I'm almost positive every GM vehicle comes with oil slick, or antifreeze slick, standard.  Most are automated however.

It could be, certainly.

left is problably a transfer case lock/unlock.
DO NOT UNLOCK your transfer case unless you're familiar with the effects of it.
I won't say another thing, except READ THE MANUAL
Link Posted: 2/24/2010 8:24:34 AM EDT
I'm pretty sure the left one is to turn VTEC on.

No, no, other way around.

right may be an exhaust brake



Have you read the manual?
Link Posted: 2/24/2010 8:33:49 AM EDT
Right = Exhaust brake.

Link Posted: 2/24/2010 8:34:41 AM EDT
I would agree with the people who actually helped lol. Left seems to be the transfer case lock which would probably put you in the super low 4 wheel drive. Just a guess but would probably make front and back wheels turn at same speed and very hard to turn and stuff.  Had a friend who had a H2 and with the super low 4 it could pull anything lol. I watched him pull a work van out of a snowy ditch that my buddy couldn't get out with his super duty with lots of stuff done to it lol.

The other still confuses me seems to be a pto does the truck have a dump bed?
Link Posted: 2/24/2010 8:35:01 AM EDT

transfer case lock and exhaust brake would be my best guess as well.



I think those had options of PTO's as well, but the icon for those looks very similar to our beloved arfcom boltface logo.
