    On my 2011 off-road, it's the RSCA deactivator.

    It deactivates your side curtain airbags if you're off-roading. If the truck sways too far one way or the other it will set the airbags off.

    That button turns them off.

    It's to turn off your "RSCA" which means if you where to roll your Taco your side curtain air bags would deploy, but you do not have this feature I am guessing because you do not have the switch. If you remove your top left dummy switch you will notice there is another wire harness for OEM fog lights. If you want OEM fog lights all you need is to buy them off of ebay then buy you a OEM fog light switch and a rely and you are ready to go, because you wiring is already done.
