Oh how weird! I'm not going out to my car to check for sure, but I don't think I have one of those. Now I have to know! *fires up google* I'm surprised it's not in your owners manual. It looks like the picture has worn off... but it sort of looks like a speedometer.

I haven't seen an E36 with that button, but it does seem like a speedo possibly but I don't know what it could be. Cruise control activation is sometimes in that area, that could be it but you have the cruise on the lever like my E34 did. I know on the E39 it has the button there and then the controls on the wheel so it might be that...but probably not. It should be in the manual I would think...but who knows. Have you tried pushing it yet?
Edit: Could it be headlight washer button? I am stumped.
Yeah i just bought the car from the 2nd owner so the manual is long gone, thanks Bimmeroyale for the link I'm going to download it right away. so i was finally able to make out the image and its a window with arrows up and down, its my window lock!....... so wtf is the switch in between my window switches!
My cruise control is on the little lever used for the window wipers. It's not a button, though, you just flick it. My first thought was cruise control but I just assumed it was the same sort of deal as with my car.
Well. The other button is the window lock on E34s, the one with the widow buttons. That is interesting. And Bimmerroyale, the manual you gave is for electric issues, it isn't the owners manual with info that would be helpful to him.
