Part of your security system? Valet switch, maybe?

If I'm right, it's either from a dealer installed or aftermarket alarm system. It allows you to turn off your alarm so a valet service can park it for you with a spare key.

that is for the alarm...if you have the alarm that disables the ignition then you need that switch if your remote breaks/gets lost. If you get in and your aarm is going off you can turn your key to the on position, and then flip that switch back and forth once, and then the car will start and your alarm will stop sounding. Found that out the hard way...lol

Doesn't that kinda defeat the purpose of an alarm and starter kill? If the average alarm comes with this, theives are gonna know about it and be able to start the car just as easily as you could.

I have that same switch. My cousin said he could deactivate my alarm. He tried and couldn't. grin

Its function probably depends on the model of the alarm...my cousin told me had done it on his friends car and it worked.

I know my car has a momentary switch near the same spot that needs to be pushed while turning on the ignition to activate valet mode.

Looks like the switch for your alarm (as stated above wink ).

My manual says I'm supposed to have one, but I have a push-button on the back of my LED tube instead. idunno

Either a valet switch or an engine kill switch. flip it and try to start the car with your key. flipping the switch will not hurt anything. if you can start the car its a valet switch for your alarm

Technically it is for car alarms with remote start. If the switch is turned on then you can use your remote to remote start, if the swith is turned to off then the remote start function will be disabled.

Its really a stupid feature when installing alarms usually i just leave it out wink
