Little on/off switch under steering column

I was poking around under the steering wheel by the fuses under the dash and came across a little toggle switch. couldnt find it in the manual and im wondering what it is. looks like it has 2 lights wired to it to. Hopefully you guys can help me out!!

There are no stock toggle switches in the Commander. This is obviously something a previous owner added, so it would be impossible for us to tell you what it is. But since you said it looks like it has two lights wired to it maybe it is fog lights or off-road lights.

Are you sure it is for the remote start ? I have not heard of this before. Where is it located under the dash ?

Very odd?

I have a Viper remote start on all 3 of our XJ's and also on the MJ. They all have a toggle switch that alloys you to cut the remote start on/off.

I would guess aftermarket alarms would be the same way.
