press it while drving the car & see what it does.
I have a shift kit switch in my EB & check to see where the wiring is going to & from.
If its a shift kit then your car will hold out longer on the gear changes :lol:

The shift kits change how quickly you gears change, when the change starts is controlled by the ECU and the Power/Normal/Economy button changes this.

Sounds like a valet switch or similar for an old alarm. Probably disconnected.
