Mystery Switches

Was curious to what the two switches next to the bonnett release are in my S4. One is a sliding switch, the other seems to be a push button.
Thanks

If the push button is the one that protudes through the under dash trim piece, it's the brake fail light test switch. Push it in, and the 'brake' light on the dash should light.

The sliding switch MAY be a dimmer switch for the dash lights.

The sliding switch is the hazard switch.
