It's part of the alarm system. To findout if this the switch that is making alarm go off, tape in the depressed position and see if ur alarm still goes off, if it doesn't do any more, then u need to adjust or replace this switch but most likely it's ur vibration sensor above the steering column, may have to be adjusted for less sensitivity
