Thing next to interior hood release

What is this thing to the left of the interior hood release lever??
I can find no explanation in the owners manual or on Google search.
Thanks for this forum!

Is that light or a button on the top of it? Maybe the dealer installed something on you van andforgot to tell you. Let us know what you find out.

Looks like a light on top and a buttonon the front. I think we need more info on if it was purchased new/used? Private sale/Dealer sale? Was it a fleet vehicle? Is there an aftermarket security system/gps system? It looks like it could be a valet switch or a mute button for radar detector. Could be a number of things

I believe that's the ole passenger eject button, aftermarket installed. Nitrous gas propulsion capable of ejecting up to a 400lb passenger through the open sunroof at a speed ranging from 200-240 mph. Yeah, that's the ticket.

Looks like your dealer optioned in the Mopar Electronic Vehicle Tracking System (EVTS). Not many people choose to get that installed since it's useless without paying a subscription fee, and if you're going to pay a subscription you might as well just pay for Uconnect Access which has a similar tracking system built in.

I went back to my Chrysler dealer to find out what this is.
It is an alarm system that they have installed on all their cars and trucks on the lot. It came as part of the package with my Pacifica. Hope it was worth it.
The sticker in the window of another van is my lead for further investigation into this.

It came with what package? Did the dealer charge you for a package or is this something that they "threw in" for free?
