On off switch next to my hood release?

I recently discovered an on off switch on my 2008 mustang and have no idea what it is... Does anyone have any idea what it could be?

Possible valet switch for a aftermarket alarm.

Re: On off switch next to my hood release?

Is it the fuel cut-off reset button?

Its a switch used with the alarm to put it in safe mode so it doesnt automatically arm itself when you walk away from the car. Alot of people use this when valet parking their cars at a hotel,casino,restaurant ect. Also can be used at car shows so the motion sensor doesnt get set off when people get to close.
