What is this button used for? SOLVED Thanks

I will like to find out what this button is used for. I see it connected to main harness but doesn't see its function. Its from a 2008 Thailand 4X4 RANGER 3.0TDCI.

Please assist, thanks.

I would push it and find out, maybe it will light up giving you an idea of what it is for. If you are lucky, maybe it will be for the electric locking rear differential!

im pressing it and nothing seems to be happening. the owners manual has nothing about this switch either, but it is connected to the harness. if it was to be controlling the diff as you said, what differences am i suppose to get in the vehicle?

its the on off switch for the rear parking sensors. you will have small rear circles in your rear bumper and if its off they will be switched off. if on you will hear beeping when in reverese. but only in the cab, its so how you know if your too close to something behind you or not.

yes its a button to turn the rear sonar system and beeping off when backing up. hence the P with the radar signal symbol.
