What in the world is this here for? I would assume trailer brakes, but it isn't a whole it just has lots of little holes behind it....

It's just a rubber rub pad to help quiet your key chain.

Been watching you and your fellow-Frontiersmen on YouTube. How's that little rubber pad workin' for you?>:D

It's a finger-print reader. Place your right thumb on the pad and you can start the engine.

Ideally its best to have no other or very limited quantities of keys in a ring as it wears out the switch earlier.

Better there than not. My Tacoma's ignition was idiotic, maybe 1" from my knee. Nice having the fob bounce against my knee constantly. Not.

Be glad you have it! I don't on my '06 Pathfinder and have to listen to the keys clacking against the finisher all the time!

That would be a great idea, RV place first stuck it under ignition, was totally hitting it trying to use the gas pedal. I don't like where I put it but at least I'm not hitting it constantly with my shin. I'll have to look into cutting a hole out for it.

All I have is truck key and remote on mine, other keys stay in pocket for that reason. I'm gonna do the Rogue key swap before too long, then it'll never be an issue ?

Thanks! Funny thing, it's totally useless and unnecessary when the truck is pointed up a cliff. Go figure. Works great coming down them though ::grin::
