Whats this on my dash?

#1
Hi. I bought a VW Polo a few months back and it has this... thing on the dashboard, just behind the ignition. The wotsit is about the size of a 5p piece, and has a button and a little red light on it. When I press the button, the light flashes cheerfully. And that's it. Does anyone have any idea what this could be? Amusing suggestions also welcome. Thanks.

is it just a little flashing red light to make potential thieves think that you have an alarm and imobilizer system thingy.

Sounds a bit flashy to me but, then again, Polo......

Yes, my car is rather dusty. I shall go to Halfords and buy some wipes, just as soon as I can figure out wtf the thing on my dash is.
Cannot post link (as I'm on a mobile that won't), but you'll find it if you google "The Sontaran Strategy"

Sorry.

(was following Leveller's example)

Is the button just to test that the little light is working?

Does it go "Ping"?

If its the same as the one on a Mitsubishi I was driving recently, it is to reset the alarm.
There was no mention of this in the owners handbook, it was on a supplimentry bit of info about the alarm
