For example, one of the switches is operable to enable/disable the sunroof, and another of the switches is operable to enable/disable the mood light. The switches may be a button (See Fig. A), and actuation of the button enables/disables the operation of the associated vehicle function. For instance, actuation of the button at an initial state wherein the function is enabled will cause the function to become disabled. Actuation of the same button then causes the function to become enabled. The invention provides for a switch to disable mood lighting in a vehicle. The invention provides for a switch to prevent the operation of a rear sunroof by a switch in the rear of the vehicle.
