It's the ejection button for Fossil.

Siren controls are usually mounted at the bottom center of the dash.

Oops, I was thinking of police cruisers, sorry. I used to install that crap in cop cars along with all the electronics stuff and they were added after manufacture of the vehicle, not so in fire trucks and ambulances. I still got to install the radios in them though smiling

In the previous picture you can see the black siren and lights switch panel in the center of the dash.

Oh come on Floorboard_Digger, play along ya sour-puss. You must be getting old and cantankerous like some of the rest of curmudgeons us are. It was inevitable joke material and he knew it.

I just read there have been problems reported with Ford traction control acting up and causing random uneven braking without even stepping on the brakes even at low speeds. Maybe that shit got wet in the rainy conditions and contributed to the accident you had. Yeah, that's the ticket... smiling

i never denied that Ford parts were made by several companies. it's the nature of the auto manufacturing beast.

Meh, I did battle with my Laser today and it was Laser - 1, Kim - 0. I think the ECU is tits up in it. Took it out, opened it up n it smells like crispy electronics although there's no obviously fried components on the board. The nerve of that shit only lastin 20yrs!

BTW, happy BDay fossil smileys

As you know Kim, you can't fix an ECU.
For $20 some neighbourhood kids could get you one.

Yeah I was hopin maybe it was just the common 3 capacitors that are known to take a dump and puke their lil guts out onto the circuit board, which is repairable, even have a spare set of 'em, but that dudn seem to be the case.

I have a spare ECU buried somewhere in the 100 or so 18gal. plastic tubs of Mitsu parts in my shipping container, but I haddn come across it yet in my excavations.

The version of this ECU comes from the early days of OBD1 and when I looked it up last night it appears the Laser is different from the Eclipses and Talons, which surprised me.

For a mere $250 I can snag one from the parts house but I think I'll keep diggin before just ploppin down 250 bones for somethin I KNOW I have .... somewhere totally
lost

My first car in 1990 had points.
I upgraded to a home built electronic ignition and it was the most reliable car I ever owned.

The caps don't always show visible signs when they fail and if they are radial caps (lead out of one end) the bulge and leak might be hidden under the bottom of them, so if you want to try replacing them anyway and see if it works.
