What does this button on the dash of my 95 tacoma do? Please help

There is a button (with a light on it) all the way to the left hand side of my dash, right beside the blank popout. Its tall and rectangular. The front was off when I got the truck and I have no idea what it does. Anyone have an idea? Its a 95 4x4. Thanks!

Clutch start cancel

Put it neutral and keep your foot off the clutch. Press the button and see if it starts.

It would only be a locker if your trd. And I am pretty sure the e locker button is in the slot that is more behind the wheel. That slot is the ECT button in autos and clutch start cancel in manuals.

It's there so you can use the starter to get the truck unstuck. The starter has tons of torque.
