What is this button?

I have searched and searched, but I cannot figure out what this button/knob is for on the dash. It clearly isn't working, bu still have no idea what it's for. Forum search and google search turned up nothing.

Ahhh yes the do hicky part! That's actually a really good guess. My windshield wipers don't work either. That's most likely it. Thanks!

The large portion of that knob/Switch controls on/off by turning left/right,
while the smaller center button activates the washer pump when pushed in.

Wait, I know what that button is!!!! It is the Pontiac version of the "Go-Baby-Go" button found on the Eleanor Mustang from Gone In 60 Seconds. There it is at the 1:00 minute mark of the video:

It's your windshield wiper control. You turn it to make the wipers work and push the button to activate the washer.
