Default WTF Switch Question!

I have this Obvous After Market Switch... it'* a little rocker switch under the Drives side... Just chillin right behind the little outlet you plug the computer reader in to. No Idea what it does but since I've had enough problems with my car I don't want to flip it and find out the hard way what it does... That might end up with my taking a shot Gun to Her!

I agree with harofreak00 follow the wires and see where they go.

I know I would put a switch down there that is on a rely that kills the power to ignition. So that when the car is off you flip it and it can't be hot wired or started.

It could be a remote car starter switch. Many people route the master power for this unit to an accessible switch so they can select whether its on or off (possibly for models which have the auto-start on low bat. feature)

It could be anything. Guessing what it might be is kinda sensless. I could have been right with my stupid joke above, but probably not.

The bst advice was given, try to follow the wires and see where they end up
