A SECRET button has been unveiled to help avoid an interfering function on your car.
A car expert from Sixth Gear Wheels used TikTok to poll viewers about the switch’s function.
He posted a clip of him sitting in a VW Polo and then waving to the button on the driver’s door.
The engine expert said: “This is for the Polo drivers.”
“Do you know what that button is for?
“If yes, comment below.
“I am very interested in what you have to say.”
In the post’s caption, he added, “I recently spotted his hidden button in the Polo Vivo.”
He then asked viewers to “guess” what it does.
Social media commenters were stumped, while others offered joking responses.
One suggested it could be an ejection seat, while a second said it makes the little hatchback “faster than a Ferrari”.
However, a user named Mario Cisternas was the one who put things right.
He said: “It disables the alarm motion detection if you leave pets or people inside.”
This avoids the awkward scenario of, say, leaving your furry friend or grumpy teenager in the car while you stroll into the shops and the alarm going off when they move inside.
This comes after another TikToker explained a hidden feature of some cars that make them perfect for summer.
Meanwhile, one motorist was furious when selfish motorists snapped up a parent-child seat at the local supermarket.
