What is this?

So I have an 11 GT, and recently noticed this next to my OBD. It has a purple pressable button, when I push it I dont notice anything on my dash. Its wired in, my guess is a garage door opener or something, but I think its a weird place.

According to google's search by image feature, it's a car. So much for Deep Learning!

Seriously though, it probably is a garage door opener remote.

You pushed a mysterious button?

It activates your cloaking device. Use only when you just realized you blew through a police radar. You won’t notice anything from inside the car.

Just drive as fast as you want, and ignore police cars. They can’t see you

Follow the wires and see where they go. It's not a factory installed thing and there's tons of aftermarket possibilities of what that switch could do.

I agree that you should see where the wires lead. My first guess would be that it’s a remote turn on for an amplifier.
