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 ?

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 It is a very outdated system.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.

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
