    toggle switch under dash / steering column

    I just noticed a small toggle switch directly below the steering column in my '96 Deville, mounted on the plastic cover that attaches below the dash in that area. Anyone know what it's for? It just says on/off

    If your car has an alarm, it is probably the valet switch.

    I have a toggle switch and a little black button and I have no idea how to work either of them.....the alarm arms and disarms but doesnot go off w/ forced entry and i cant figure it out.

    But the toggle switch might be for a car phone that was previously in the car as I had one and Im thinking that is what the switch was for. Ill post pics later.

    I've never seen a car phone that had a seperate switch. They turn on and off like normal cell phones with a power button that's on them. Maybe someone had a kill switch in there once or like gman said it had an alarm.

    Here is mine. Im asuming that the left one is the alarm but I cant get it to work, and the other one I have no idea what it could be for except for maybe the phone that was in the car to begin with:
