Pics? Sounds aftermarket to me, so if it is, it could do anything. May kill power to the engine/ignition so someone can't steal it as easily. Who knows.

could also be for hte door lights... trace the wires... if they go to the fuse panel #4? then it will be for your door lights if u are lucky enough to getyour doors off :@

I would just switch it and see what happens. LOL.. obviously with the car off since you don't know what is going to happen.

its the switch for the tank tracks. or the automatic roll over button.
"The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president."

Thankfully its not the optional red button that came on some TJ's. you'd have to be worried if that were the case, but since its black I'm sure its just the automatic roof switch, or possibly an aftermarket panic button that engages flamethrowers.

I have seen switches like this on quadratec for the "door defeat fuse", it will allow you to just switch the switch instead of actually pulling the fuse when you remove your doors. I almost bought one recently. If it is wired into your bottom right fuse, it should say "door defeat" on it, that is most likely what it is.
