    The alarm is factory.

    My Tacoma didn't come with the Flux Capacitor option.

    It's not a factory installed item but I believe it probably is a dealer installed alarm and that is probably the program button. Wierd spot to put it as the majority of the vehicles I have owned the button or switch was installed underneath the dash. The plus would be easier access to program new remotes, etc.

    No such thing as a factory alarm. Toyota doesnt do that.

    Lots of dealers install their own alarms when the trucks come in from the factory, and call em factory. They aint.

    Also, theyre cheapos too. But it beats not having one at all.

    I think a "WTF does this button do?" post would get you more answers.
