Switch Purpose ??
#1
Berlingo B9,,, 1.6 Diesel... 6 Speed Auto (Fantastic machine)

Hi Everybody, and Happy Christmas to you all.
I have an interesting question, on my B9 on the end of the indicator stalk, there is a tiny press switch......

If you have the radio on , and press this switch a message appears in the radio display that says "Pronounce a voice description"
'
Since the the original post I have discovered that if my phone is attached on bluetooth, and is switched on, if you press the switch it takes a photo with the phone' s camera. cant think of a use for this feature, and cant find anything in the manual.

Has anyone got any ideas ???
Many thanks, Richard

It's usually used to activate automatic headlamps. If you don't have those fitted then there is normally a push button with no electrical guts under it, or you may even have the complete switch, but without the auto lights it won't do anything. You'll know if you have auto lights as you'll also have auto wipers with the rain sensor on the windscreen.

I have my iphone connected to the bluetooth of the berlingo when i press that button on the end of the indicator stalk with my phone connected to the bluetooth it activates siri and i can ask it to dial people and get information up on the screen without touching the phone but i dont get any of the audio responses from the phone that probably just a setting on my iphone
