Add Dash buttons? Next to traction control

It is possible to get buttons for either side of the traction control button? It appears that there is room for two additional buttons in this location - just above the 4x4 selection.

There are factory options that go there so yes you can get the buttons to go there. They will have the option printed on the button though.

Any ideas on what those options are? In all the exploded diagrams, nothing shows the buttons on the left side on the panel.

Maybe if I know what those options are, I'll be able to find the part.

Well I know the one on the left is the hill decent control that comes with the fx4s, but I can't remember the other one.

I think it is the passenger airbag shut off switch.

Airbag light, not switch. The switch for airbag is a key lock under the steering column by your right knee Add Dash buttons? Next to traction control-1371556989965.jpg

I would imagine you could but you would have to get it activated at a dealership.

I think the dash may have changed a bit on the 2013's. My traction control button is to the left of the radio. It's flanked by two blanks. I was hoping to get a momentary contact added to one of those sides.

To the right of my radio is just a Sync advertisement placard.
