Self destruct?

The symbol looks like a potentiometer so it's probably some kind of light dimmer... Try turning your lights on and pressing it and see if your dash lights get dimmer/brighter...

If your car doesn't explode it's probably not self destruct.

Do you have the owners manual?

If I don't hear back from you I'll assume it's a self destruct button :P

Found what it is. It's a button to heat the windshield where the wipers rest. In case of ice I'm assuming.
