    It's the one at theSwitches.jpg bottom in the middle named "LED." Looked all over the manual and searched all over the inter-web....can't seem to find it. I've toggled it on and off several times and don't see that it does anything except toggle the light in the switch itself. Anyone? Beuller? Beuller??

    Mine doesn't have it. Maybe it's part of your package with the idea that you will add aftermarket light bar. Not sure.

    I would have someone stand outside and walk around the truck as you turn it on and off to see if it activates something outside. Possible could of been an old switch from the previous owner for a light bar or something that got taken out. Also I think the XPS comes with illuminated door sills, might be the on/off switch?

    What you should do is pop it off and see what other wires it has connected. More than likely its an aftermarket switch that the dealer installed. What i would also suggest is wait until its dark out and turn it on and walk around the truck to see what is on then go back in and turn it off and see what may have turned off.

    It came brand new with that? Looks like an aftermarket switch someone would install to use with their light bar. If you dont have a light bar and its brand new, that is odd. Maybe the dealership forgot to add it, or took it off?

    Should be for the LED DRLs below your headlights that came on your XPS-X edition.

    I couldn't answer that for you. But based on the price for them, $340ish, I'd save and put money into a retrofit or other light bar. Personally I don't like the LED below the headlights like that.
