    Hi.... New member here. Just got a 2010 Rapter with Sync and Nav. Got my Droid phone paired up and working. But there is a button on the dash wit a blue LED that I don't know what it does. I pressed it many times and nothing happens but the blue LED flashes. I think it's something aftermarket since I can not find it in the owners manual. Also the truck has remote start. Heres a picture. Thanks for the help.[​IMG]

    That's an aftermarket install. I don't have that button on my 2010...

    Definitely an Aftermarket device. I don't really know what it is and what it does. Check on the back of the dash where the wiring goes, and from there we can draw conclusions about what it is and what it does. To me it looks like it has something to do with an aftermarket Bluetooth device probably to make a Smartphone work in conjunction with the alarm system of the vehicle. I have no idea, am just guessing. :4-dontknow: :shakehead: :doh:

    I know it's some type of aftermarket device. I popped the bezel off and tried to trace the wires but they go into a wire harness and disappear. I am also thinking it has something to do with a smart phone app.

    I also have a 2010 with the exact same button and I also have no clue what it does.

    I've seen that button before, if you press it 3 times really quick, your raptor will transform into a prius :3-smash:

    It has to be an add-on device that was taken out of the vehicle when you purchased it and this was left behind so they didn't leave a hole in the dash.

    One button to call the house/intercom, the other to open the gate.
