Aftermarket, whatever they are.

The 'P' looks like a parking sensor symbol?, has someone fitted forwards sensors?

The round one looks like a small flashing LED, some sort of alarm/immobiliser?
Thanks for the reply. It does have forward parking sensors which I assumed were standard. The large round button can be pressed but doesnt seem to activate anything. It doesnt appear to light up. Weird! I just bought the car from a dealer, 21 plate.
Thinking about it and looking closer, is there a sticky pad behind the round button? 🤔

If you're brave enough to investigate might it just be one of those cheapo 'fake alarm' buttons... literally a button battery and LED. I've seen similar advertised, gives the appearance of an aftermarket alarm without the cost. If the battery has run out it would also explain why it doesn't do anything.

Just a suggestion (I take no responsibility for the consequences 🤣) but give it a gentle wiggle. If its properly affixed THROUGH the centre console you should be able to feel it, but if its literally just stuck ON the console it'll probably not take much wiggling.
Good point. I will take a look tomorrow when I get some light on the subject.

I found it doing an image search using bixby vision -
Its a blue LED. Someone must have fitted it to light up the compartment beneath.

You have to question whether someone's eyesight is sufficient to drive if they need a light to guide their phone to the phone charger 🤣

But yes, great find that, should be easy enough to confirm its wired in with a wiggle test then. But what too?

I don't touch modern electrics, technological advances passed me by many years ago so I've never had cause to go there (and don't have my car to hand to double check)... but can we get hands round the back of that via the footwell or is it a panel off job?

I'm surprised none of the techies on here haven't jumped in on this yet 🤷🏻
I took a look at a diagram of the light and it is a wired piece. Someone went to great length to drill the panel and install it. Really strange. Im guessing the LED failed and needs replacing. Bizarre mod to make as you say!
