Buick Faceplate Buttons

Buick Verano at SouthTowne Motors

Technology these days can be a bit confusing, especially the newest technology that hasn’t been around for too long. Fortunately, there are dozens of internet sites and manuals to help us learn the things that don’t appear to be such common sense anymore. With the rise of the infotainment system, consumers can now control anything and everything right from an eight-inch color touchscreen from the center of their dash.

Luckily, since some of us aren’t familiar with the touchscreen functions, there are a few actual buttons we can learn about to control radio stations, phone calls, and more. The newest models of Buicks here at SouthTowne Motors have these buttons. They are called the faceplate buttons and they are located on the sides of the vehicle’s touch screen system.

They don’t look like your typical buttons. They are backlit and are flush against the system. Just a light touch is all you need for these special buttons. Don’t confuse them with the chrome bar that is above or below them. When you touch the area, you will hear a low beep to indicate you pressed it correctly.

There are also buttons that are connected to the system located on the steering wheel. These are actual buttons you press a bit harder and that do various things in the vehicle without making you take your hands off of the steering wheel. The push to talk button has three functions. Push it once to activate the voice recognition and voice prompts. If you push it twice, it will go right to activating the voice recognition without prompts. A third, long push will mute or unmute the radio speakers in the vehicle.

The up and down arrows will toggle between radio stations and tracks on a CD or DVD. Pushing the down arrow will also end a call or reject an incoming call. The seek button will play the next track on a CD or USB device. The volume buttons are just behind the steering wheel and are pulled toward you to turn it up or down.

Hopefully, this guide has helped you learn a bit more about your new Buick from your Newnan car dealer. We also have a wide selection of Chevrolet and Cadillac vehicles. So if you’re in the market for a new Chevy, head south of Atlanta and come see us at SouthTowne Motors!
