If it has engine written next to it it's not the hazzards button, is this in
your gauge cluster or on the dash? The hazzards button is a backlit button
which is lighted all of the time (atleast on my S80 it is). You press it and
it turns on your hazzards/flashers, press it again and it turns them off.
