Can any of you help me identify what these switches would have been used for? I am unable to attach the picture.
The picture of the dash top switches are in my album on this site.
One of the solenoids on the firewall makes a clicking sound when one of these switches is activated.

Since you have a combination, my best guess (99% certain) is that one of them, probably the left one, activates the Beacon Ray, and the other would be a siren/horn switch. The noise from the solenoid will require a little detective work on your part.

BTW, do you have a Beacon Ray for your car??? If so, mount it up, plug it in and try the switches and see if it runs.

Thanks Russell for the quick reply.

I have a second set of switches that are marked for the 360 degree light and the "Horn/Siren" switch. That switch bank is located above the glove compartment and below the air conditioning vent.

I know that these are wired correctly as I have installed a siren.

The solenoid (clicking) is for the siren. The S/H switch activates the solenoid, which pulls power from the battery and sends it to the siren.
