It gives the alternator current somewhere to go when it is cut and it is still charging.
So the advantage of this is that if the engine is running, and the switch is pulled to off - then a 6 way switch has somewhere for the current to go in the time difference between the switch being pulled and the engine revs falling to 0 ?
