Default Unknown Dash Indicator Light

On the bottom left of my Ranger's dashboard under the foglight switch there is a small light and I have no idea what it's for. I haven't done any mods so it's stock. I can't find it in the manual or anywhere on the internet. Does anyone know what it's for or what it does?

Thanks

Would there be any way to know how to turn it on or use it?

Its definitely not from the factory.

And pull the face of that dash off a tiny bit and follow the wires, see were they go.

could be an alarm, remote starter, both, or a dummy alarm light.

look up under you're dashboard and look for a black box with a ton of wires going in and out of it, see if it has a label on it. i discovered an "auto valet" remote starter / alarm under the dash of my old car, that i never knew was there.
