general question


i got me a 1986 daihatsu rocky 2.8 non turbo a couple of weeks ago, one thing that caugh my atention is a button in the center console that says " hard and soft ". now my question is what is that for and how do i get it back to work.


This button is for the suspension settings, they have three positions, hard for on road use such as towing or load carrying, medium for normal road use, and soft for off road use.

These operate the shock absorbers, these are electrically controlled, but may be prone to non operation due to dirt and water ingress. Many owners often replaced these electronically controlled items with cheaper, standard shockers.
