Oil cooler. Been there, done that. It's located at the oil filter.

Yeah, that's a good idea.  I was able to find the HUD switch on eBay for $15.  I'll just have to be careful cutting the right shape - a round hole with a  hole saw would be a  lot easier (lol) - guess I'll have to break out the Dremel.

Or get the HUD switch and cut the bezel for it.  Grin IF I can get my trans rebuilt soon, there is a HUD equipped 'tek at a yard an hour north of here I still need to go check out. I don't mind using the car around town in 3rd gear but the slipping and on the highway with no 4th tends to put a crimp in my gas budget.

Yes, the HUD works fine.  But here's the thing.  Now that I have an actual round DIC button in my possession, it turns out it is too big to fit in the hole in the dash.  So apparently mine originally had a dash bezel like your's and that previous owner bought a dash with no switches and then cut a hole in it for his own purposes.  Now I can either enlarge the  hole to try to get the round button to fit and still have no HUD switch, or just bite the bullet and buy another dash bezel with the DIC/HUD switch like your's.

Mine is a 2001. I am surprised it works without the switch. It dims the display and moves it up and down. My guess is that somewhere along the line, someone switched out the dash trim and couldn't find another HUD trim.

Right, I thought the HUD buttons were that weird shape.  And were only on later models.  But my car originally had the round button (per cut out on dash), yet clearly has HUD as speed and other info (turn signals. brights, radio stations) display on the windshield all the time (and it happens to be a feature that I've never had on previous cars and LOVE).   Maybe the connectors for the HUD on 2001's were installed but were just never put into use - - i.e. no ability to dim display?

And assuming it is for the HUD, is there any reason I might want to replace the original dash with one that accommodates the HUD button?  Does it do anything besides dim the display?

We've always put in a quart of ATF in place of a quart of oil in all our engines, particularly high mile engines. Our 200,000 mile minivan's 3800 is super clean inside.

You're sure you have the HUD? Because the DIC switches with the HUD isn't round.

If it has a gray, 2 black, a yellow, a brown and a white wire, then it's definitely for the HUD. I don't remember any other gray connectors in the area when I replaced my dash.
