Question About a Switch

Okay.... New owner with a qustion about a mysterious switch. I found this loose and tucked in the passenger side cowl area. (Actually "tucked" isn't the right word. It was mashed in and cracked my s**t as in the attached pix.) It a simple on/off, has 2 basic prongs and looks like it might fit in one of the relay slots. Excuse the fuzzy focus. What is it?......







I had my GTO at the local Chevy dealer a few weeks ago and one of the deals involved a relay. (As a side story, a week later I also noticed a bad scrape on the lower, passenger side corner of the front bumper facia. I suspect it happened at the dealer, also. It's higher than a curb, more like one of those raised cement pads that they have in the parking lot for mounting the light poles.)

That switch is nothing OEM. Hard saying what it may have been used for in the past.

You now know which dealership to never patronize again.

I'm guessing it's for manually testing and powering a curcuit normally controled by a relay.
