Default Found 2 mystery buttons under dash Today

Found two strange buttons Today to the right side of the steering wheel, just under the dashboard ( easily accessed from drivers seat). Anyone know what they control? Don't remember seeing them mentioned in the owners manual.

The one marked "AFS" turns off the Adaptive Front Lighting System, the thing that swivels the headlights on HID cars.

The other resets your tire pressure monitor.

Sometimes I wish I had one of those for the passenger seat.

Thats NOT safe. I just tell my passenger "hey you hear that thump?" I pull over and tell them to check their side. then I drive away rofl. Much more exciting than an ejection.

Default 3rd mystery button

There is also a button way under the glove compartment (2007 ES350) that re-establishes communication with the computer, specifically the tire sensor monitors. Not sure what else

I am still trying to find them buttons. LOL! I knew they are somewhere under the dash. I ended up having to take it to the shop for them to reset it.

Default Under dash viewing

Use your smartphone in selfie mode, camera pointing towards you to get view of under dash.
