FJ Cruisers of Northern California
Can anyone post a picture or diagram of what all the buttons are supposed to be in a 2008 FJ?
Currently I only have the parking sensor and rear diff lock, getting the atrac for Christmas but seeing what else is available to me!
I think subwoofer would be the only other one.
hmm, so the others really do nothing? how lame!
I forgot factory auxiliary light button. The Blanks do serve a purpose though they are for aftermarket accessory expansion some guys have them all filled up.
oooh what aftermarket accessories are there?
Its a weird design to have it with so many blanks. And yeah I dont have Aux lights. Those are just the fog lights correct?
The auxiliary lights would be driving lights either the factory overhead lights or bumper mounted
Accessory wise you could fill'em up with a front locker,front and rear lights,compressor,aux battery switch, Flux capcitor switch LOL Etc. Many accessories you could add to fill out the switch panel.
Nicole, there are MANY possible needs for those blanks switches.... Perhaps you add a second gas tank or fog lights on an after market front bumper. Maybe you add additional lights on your roof rack or rock lights. Perhaps you have an onboard fridge you want to be able to turn on and off from the driver's seat. Many switches for the many 'modes' one might make to their truck. It is for those who are modifying their truck to their particular needs and uses.
Thanks guys. Sorry pretty new still at all of this!
As you continue to wheel, you'll see what other folks have done...and will start to figure out what you need and don't need for your truck and it is very personal and dependent on how you want to use it. Just make sure you do your research....everyone has their opinion on what should and should not be done to their truck and which companies to buy from. The blank switch spots allow you to truly personalize your truck for your needs.
Many of the folks modifying their trucks for rock crawling, overlanding, light 4-wheeling, etc. often find themselves scouring the online forums for hours each night for more information...more ideas...and essentially, more ways to spend $$$ and make your truck more awesome than it already is.
What I really dont get is why there is not a tow button like in the Tundras... and it makes me sad.

Amen to this statement, have a look at Nestahs truck to see what mods can be accomplished.
I used one slot for my ARB fog lights on my bull bar. Future switches might beam me to trails :-)
Is the vsc turn of the vehicle stability? Because if so I want it! I tried to do some slipping and sliding and donuts and the truck does not allow lol
Is it plug and play like Atrac?
