    Any idea what this is? I got my truck used and have no idea what it is. Its under the steering wheel next to the tire pressure reset button.

    Bed cover switch? Alarm? Hidden fuel shut off? That's an odd looking switch...

    You could trace the wires and see where they lead to. :notsure:
    Hopefully, it isn't one of those chrome reverse muffler bearing auto-lube controllers! :eek::poking:

    Stay away from your exhaust when you push any of those buttons. Don't want to get flooded with any of that chrome reverse muffler bearing lubricant or relative bearing grease! PLEASE! Be careful!

    What would have 8 wires going to it? Cheapo plow rig? Really overcomplicated garage door opener? After market flashers/ take/down lights?

    As said, nothing harmful. If you got it from a dealer I bet they ripped whatever it was out.

    Mine has something similiar, it's an alarm switch or something. I see you're in Chandler, did you get your truck from Right Toyota? That is where I got mine.. well kind-of.. and I have Karr Alarm with a box that's looks similiar.

    Is there a huge can of fertilizer and another of ammonium nitrate in the truck? If so, I don't recommend pushing it.
