To be honest it is virtually impossible to get exact labels, as not only did they change per season/episode, label layouts actually changed in an episode depending on gadgets used. Here is a few of my Seaon 1/2 scans.

Hope these help.

Mike

not to mention....

Emergency Braking System- Used to come to a complete stop after SPM.

there are so many thats not from season1/2... so i'm guessing that the list was compiled by some-one else and the guy is asking which ones are used on the switch pods... !!!!

Alright I'll go ahead and plug it...

I have a extensive listing of (what I believe are) all the buttons used in all four seasons of Knight Rider in The Knight Rider Companion (www.knightridercompanion.com) under the Knight Equipment section along with an example of Season 1/2 Switchpods and Season 3/4 Switchpods. I went through every episode of KR scene by scene to compile this list of features listed on the buttons themselves and I still missed some!

It took forever and I was constantly having to update to cover something that I missed but I feel it's a pretty solid list. Please note that the buttons in "Knight of the Phoenix" when Scheffe's prototype dash is shown are nearly impossible to decipher due to the camera being so out of focus.

Since I love KRUK so much and I'm all about helping people out, I'll even do you a solid and give you images for both seasons instead of making you buy a copy of my book to get the list.


SEASON 1/2

Missing - Record, Tear Gas, Oxygen, Smoke Release, X-Ray


SEASON 3/4


Enjoy!

now my question is this...
do labels in switchpods are frameless (each one of them) or have a black frame around them

Based on this image above, you can clearly see that there is more than the thickness of the button itself reflecting light from the indicator LEDs.

I would say there is a very thin raised black surface or "frame", around the buttons, perhaps to keep them straight for the camera? I rendered them that way, anyway in my artwork.
