What if that switch was the cruise control? That seems the most reasonable way to do it to me. I drove one of the vettes that first had DOD and I would hate to try and drive that thing in stop-n-go traffic. I'm sure it is much better now, but I doubt is very effective unless you are cruising at a fairly constant speed with low torque demand, i.e, the conditions when most people use cruise control. Just an idea.
