It's likely a kill-switch, possibly installed alongside an aftermarket alarm. I'd have someone remove it, unless you're particularly concerned with it getting stolen by an idiot - any professional thief is going to look for just such a switch, or hotwire the car in such a way as to make that little switch irrelevant.
