Hanging as in plugged in?

Any numbers or markings on it?

At first I'd think throttle switch but these cars have drive by wire so that can't be it.

re: mystery switch

Part of the plastic housing is broken away so if there were numbers they are gone

Does this engine have a dual path intake manifold? If so, perhaps it is a position confirmation switch. If you had a engine wiring diagram it should show a mechanical sw.

That microswitch looks like part of a hood latch switch.
