On my 04 manual ..I have a couple of switches that I cant find in the handbook.
At the top of the center console between the window controls is a two position up and down rocker switch. I can't work out what's its function....and at the very bottom of the console in the center between the rear washer and the track switch is an image of a head lamp with a rotary switch 0-3.
With the high been "on" I can hear a pumping kind of sound from the head lamp area when moving from 0 to 3 but I cant detect any change.
I'm sure you all know the answer :blush: There will be more questions to follow.

The rocker switch stops operation of windows from passengers.
It locks the rear windows.

The other switch you mention is headlight beam
You can notice the beams moving at night when adjusting.
By this I mean when parked close to a wall at night.

Just to clarify what Col said-
the rocker switch prevents the use of the switches in the rear of the console for the rear windows.
The switches in the front can still be used to operate the rear windows,
This was necessary (as is switch placement in the centre console because the windows
don't have the sensors to stop them when there is an obstruction (eg. hand, arm, head).

The roller switch is to lower the level of the headlights.
The 0 setting is normal, if you are carrying a load in the rear (thus raising the front of the vehicle)
then 1-3 will lower the aim of the lights to a) help you to see the road better, b) prevent blinding oncoming traffic.
That was the thought behind it, it's a feature of most cars these days, and almost nobody ever uses it!
