    Cleaning up under the drivers seat of my 2008 OTO and came across a rubber covered push button on the floor just in front of the seat. The electronics cover there has a carefully cut out and trimmed access hole for it. Can’t find any reference for it but it is obviously factory and has a distinct click when it is depressed. Haven’t clicked with the key or motor on so far but would rather know what it does before I fool with it again. Anyone have any ideas what it’s function is?? I hope I haven’t missed some obvious reference somewhere.

    Fuel inertia switch, to cut fuel off if you have an accident.

    Do you mean the fuel inertia switch described on p139 of your owners manual ?

    Here’s a picture. The cover is formed so that it’s rises to clear it

    So I did miss the obvious. If I click it does it toggle on and off?.Probably best to not find out .

    It will reset the inertia switch.
