Lol was that a factory option? But joking aside there is one wire running from it that goes into a big wire loom, has anyone seen this?

May be some type of capacitor if it only has one wire. It appears that it should be bolted down to something, probably to ground it.


Does it have any numbers or name on it?

It cancels the radio signal interference.

In that case wouldn't it be tied into the ECU or ignition and not the solenoid?

You would think but from what I have read it tied into the wiring harness somehow which ultimately cancels the signal. The large hole is for connecting to the solenoid, but can't remember if NEG or POS. I'll check mine later and get back to you.

If it connects to the solenoid through the large mounting hole, then it would be positive as the solenoid only has powered connections. The ground on a solenoid is through the attaching bracket.


That's not making much sense to me, I'd love to see any more info you could provide and thanks for your efforts.

I was hoping it was the self destruct mechanism.

But if its for the radio I may try removing it since it won't be needed.

Does the tab bolt to the solenoid or does the wire connect to it?
Or any idea where the wire goes to?

Thanks everyone for looking into this for me. If it is for the radio that may make sense because the radio fm/am function on the radio doesnt work at all...its just silent not even static or anything

Sorry it took so long but I almost forgot.

Here is a pic. Don't mind the mess. That's about the last spot under the hood that needs more mess cleaning.

That's a circuit breaker.

Ok the circuit breaker at the solenoid is for the power windows and power door locks. I am still trying to find the confirmation info on FOXBOX's piece in the photo. What color wire goes in and can you get a photo of the back side.

That's a circuit breaker for power seats, windows and doors. Connects like this.
