    'Power' button beside overhead lights??

    Ok apologies as this is bound to be a repost but I've been searching for nearly an hour on here and google trying to figure out what it does!

    I have a button behind the interior overhead light switches that can best be described as having a power symbol on it.

    Can someone please tell me what this does? Cant find it in the manual either, on the plus side I did spot the auto-close and opening windows...win!

    Thanks in advance,
    Pete

    I think it's to turn off internal sensors before locking and arming the alarm iirc. Press it, then get out and deadlock/arm within 10 seconds
