It's for if you want to fit a front passenger airbag deactivation switch in the glovebox.
When the bag is switched off for e.g a baby seat or childs booster seat the button fitted in that spare slot lights up.

If it's to the left of the heated rear screen switch then it could be for either :-

  Passenger Seat Heating Control - four wires - Green/Yellow, Green/Red, Orange/Yellow and Black

  Passenger Airbag Deactivation Warning Lamp - two wires - Black/Red and Green/Orange

Clive beat me to it as he types faster than I do. :)

its not worth it my insurance werent happy at the fact i was enquiring about deactivating a safety feature in the words of the experts kids under 12 should never be in the front the rears the safest place to be but as you were saying it may be worth fitting the button just to fill up the buttons cmon were guys nothing can have enough buttons if possible the inside of the focus would look like knight rider lol
