Just bought this beauty yesterday

2015 Sport with 3.6 engine and automatic transmission. Has a lift and 35" tires. Can anyone tell me what the two switch's are for in the second pic? The owners manual does not show them.

Hill descent and traction control. Download the full owners manual online. It will be in there.

Hold on. You don't know what a traction control button looks like? Almost every car I've ever owned has has this symbol either in the gauge cluster as a light that illuminates when low traction occurs or the picture is on the button to disable traction control.

Thanks guys. No, I have never seen those symbles before. My 03 Sport that I traded in, did not have them. Found it.
Hill Descent Control (HDC) — If Equipped
HDC is only intended for low speed off-road driving. HDC maintains vehicle speed while descending hills in off-road driving conditions by applying the brakes when necessary.


The symbol indicates the status of the Hill Descent Control (HDC) feature. The lamp will be on solid when HDC is armed. HDC can only be armed when the transfer case is in the “4WD LOW” position and the vehicle speed is less then 30 mph (48 km/h). If these conditions are not met while attempting to use the HDC feature, the HDC indicator light will flash on/off.

When enabled, HDC senses the terrain and activates when the vehicle is descending a hill. HDC speed may be adjusted by the driver to suit the driving conditions. The speed corresponds to the transmission gear selected.


Gear

Approximate HDC Set Speed

1st

1 mph (1.5 km/h)

2nd

2.5 mph (4 km/h)

3rd

4 mph (6.5 km/h)

4th

5.5 mph (9 km/h)

DRIVE

7.5 mph (12 km/h)

REVERSE

1 mph (1.5 km/h)


However, the driver can override HDC operation by applying the brake to slow the vehicle down below the HDC control speed. If more speed is desired during HDC control, the accelerator pedal will increase vehicle speed in the usual manner. When either the brake or the accelerator is released, HDC will control the vehicle at the original set speed.

Enabling HDC
Shift the transfer case into 4WD LOW range. Refer to “Four-Wheel Drive Operation” in “Starting and Operating” for further information.

Press the “Hill Descent” button. The “Hill Descent Control Indicator Light” in the instrument cluster will turn on solid.
NOTE:
If the transfer case is not in 4WD LOW range, the “Hill Descent Control Indicator Light” will flash for five seconds and HDC will not be enabled.

If the ESC senses that the brakes are overheating the “Hill Descent Control Indicator Light” will flash for five seconds and HDC will become deactivated until the brakes have cooled.

Disabling HDC

Press the “Hill Descent” button or shift the transfer case out of 4WD LOW range. The “Hill Descent Control Indicator” light in the instrument cluster will turn off.

Yes, topless season is now over. Night wheeling season is here for the next five months.
