The combination switch assembly is a multi-function switch comprising the controls for turn signals, hazard, headlight dimmer and flash-to-pass functions. The switch lever on the left side of the steering column, above the wiper switch lever, controls the turn signal, headlight dimmer and flash-to-pass functions. The hazard function is controlled by the actuating knob on the bottom part of the steering column.
