    I think he is talking about the TPMS reset button? I could be wrong.

    Does the button have a picture like so: [​IMG]

    I think it could be a spare tire release button. Have the passenger push it when you're being tailgated and it will cause the spare to bounce up and smack the windshield. That'll make 'em back off.

    Yeah good one, then you can get sued. :) haha. I'll look if I have the button. What if it is a Lojack sensor or something?

    Last time I checked that button was on the driver side of my truck, under the steering wheel. The OP says his "button" is on the passenger side on the firewall. So no, that's not it. :D Please play again.

    I think the button the op is talking about is just a plug. There are a couple in the engine compartment up top of the wheel wells also. I pried one up, and all it does is plug a hole, probably to keep moisture out.
