Probably for an aftermarket remote start. They normally have on/off switches for them.

Could very well be a valet switch for an alarm system…The ones I have had are mounted inside the cab in the fuse box right beside the drivers door….

You need to find the alarm/remote start box under the dash and see what brand it is. Do you have any other antennas in your front windshield? It might be just a leftover switch from an alarm/remote start that they were too lazy to take out.

well it could have been used for a high idle switch, but sounds like whatever it was on, it isnt installed still.

Trace the wires. It could be anything. I have strange stuff with switches wired to my truck that no one would ever figure out.

Do you have an aftermarket double din receiver with a screen and/or a slide out screen installed in the vehicle?

It could also be the switch to allow the screen to view videos/movies while in Drive. Just a thought..

I would say this is possible but unlikely only because it would really need to be reachable from the drivers seated position.
