The switch for the retarder is on the console to the left of the pilot on my 90. The round key above the door bell is for the security alarm. THe retarder itself is a component of the transmission that provides breaking force. When activated and working properly it engages in consort with the brakes using the floor pedal and there is an additional hand control that works it seperately.
