not factory... have you traced the wiring, what does it go to? Hard to say what it's for without seeing the truck/wiring in person... stick your head under the dash and find out where the wires go. I've seen the cubby hole in the dash used for lots of things, our Ex has trailer brake controler wiring still in the cubby, from the last owner, but no controler. Nice thing is it hooks right up to controlers I have in the other trucks!

Does your truck have an alarm system, if so then maybe it's an override switch to disable it in case the remote fails.
