    Default What does this button do? (206)

    In my 206 GTi, the horn is on the steering wheel. It still has the buttons on the ends of the indicator stalks, but I can't work out what they do (or should do). I found some stuff online about resetting the trip meter and keeping the headlights on for 30 seconds after you get out, but that applies only to the newer CAN bus enabled cars.

    Does anybody know if the stalk buttons do anything on the old non-multiplexed (99-01) cars? Are they connected to wires I could use for my custom electronics?

    I was thinking they'd be a good stealthy button to change the fuel map from ethanol to petrol etc...

    G'day,
    on the 18E, the button on the end of the left stalk sets the headlights auto on/off. Turn the key one click to accessories, press and hold the button to activate/non activate. There is usually a bell noise to indicate it worked.
    regards,
    Les W.

    my car is muxed, but the left is for the auto-headlight as pug206gti says and the right is to cycle through the various trip computer options (hold button in resets the distance for calculation of fuel consumption).

    I am sure they can be remapped, if you feel like uploading, disassembling, modifying and re-downloading the firmware on the BSI ECU. Unlikely to be worth it, but perhaps some tech-geek has already down most of the work - it's amazing how much time some people put in to tinkering with car ECUs. I think there were a couple of openECU projects around.

    And I thought it was the button for the passenger ejection seat

    G'day,
    you have to use the finger and hand that presses the button to eject the passenger.
