The middle one?

Isn't that for the heated wiper fluid the older versions used to have that had to be deactivated through a recall?

Mine doesn't have it.

My 2010 doesn't have it either.
I believe it was removed. Something about it starting fires.

Something about it starting fires.

Which is ironic considering the button has water on it ... so maybe it's the irony switch.

Alex,

I have an 07 and have this button, its for warming up the wiper fluid, GM has sent recall notices out and checks to disable this system. however there is an aftermarket company that sells the heater so it can be reactivated in an hr or less. I love this feature in the icey cold days, works great no fires.

Yeah, that picture definitely made me laugh MrHolland. I saved it to my computer.


I saw a little bit of the damage from the washer fluid fires when they first started to realize what it was. An Escalade came in on a flatbed when I was at the dealer with my Brougham. I know I would have died if it happened to my truck... It wasn't a pretty! But mine doesn't have that feature either. GM did away with it, 2010 and newer don't have it anymore. A friend of mine is a Cadillac tech and he filled me in on that when I bought the truck.

Hey alex Im in Miami also, miami beach. I'd say like 1 in 15 cars on the road here are an escalade. I like taking long rides though, right now I'm on a road trip up in Jersey and I know for a fact I wont see a single one while im up here ;) yay, I'm important again haha

ps. mine also has that button I have an 09 it was also disabled in the recall so all it is now is decoration

The button on the right is for the power retractable steps. It turns them off in case you don't want to use them.
