Curious About Switches - 2003 Rubicon

Just purchased a 2003 Rubicon. (4.0 auto) It has a switch under the steering column on the bottom of the dash. It is a toggle on/off. What does it do? No mention of it in the owners manual. Also, there is a push switch ( it can be pushed down or in) behind the grill in front of the radiator on the drivers side of the Jeep. Any idea what that does? Again, no mention of it in the owners manual. Jeep looks pretty stock.
Thank - new here.

i own an 06 rubicon and dont have either of those switches. you might try to trace the lines down to see where they go or be brave and just toss one.

the one under dash is prob an aftermaket switch from quadratec to turn off dome lights when doors are off. open doors and flip it, if the lights shut off thats it.

Probably aftermarket alarm system.

I also have a '03 Rubicon, but a manual. I don't have either switch if it helps.
