Have not seen that before. Have you checked your owners manual

The switch is "E-AT". It changes the shift point of the transmission's lower gears to improve torque in hilly or snow and ice conditions. It improves low end torque at the expense of gas milage. I never use it on my Villager, but I live in a warm clmate with few hills.
