Need help with this concoction
Guys I'm trying to replace this bezel and cannot figure what the p/o installed here. I don't want whatever it is but afraid to start disconnecting. Anyone have any ideas ? http://986forum.com/forums/uploads02...1461370410.jpg

I wanted to post a video no luck. Basically if you turn that knob it starts chirping all 3 red lights go on/off then it will continually chirp every 3-5 seconds.

That's funny because I have a spare bezel that looks almost identical. Exact same knob and LEDs. I was told that it was for a radar detector, but have no idea as all I had was the bezel with knob and LEDs.

It is for a radar detector, a K-40 to be exact. You will also find modules mounted behind your front and rear bumper covers. It is a very outdated system. I removed mine. Charles I think you had my switch cover in your possession when you did my blue LED lighting.

Yes, sir!
That's exactly where they came from. :)
Couldn't remember for sure until you mentioned it.

Thank you very much guys.

The LED's in mine are placed in the spare dash idiot light locations. Left blinks for front - right for rear. It works for detecting conventional radar, Ford's, Audi's, Mercedes, and a few others. :)

Go overboard
Get you a magnetron from an old microwave and pulse it to always give out 55mph....that was a project from the late 80's :)
