Hey guys, I was just digging through my car the other day and found this under my steering column. I can't find it online and no one at a shop knows what it is. Is this a performance chip or something? It says "power plug" on it thanks to anyone who helps. Any input is helpful
Ok so impatient me decided to run outside and follow it, two of the wires look like they're grounded and the rest run to this box Attachment 201239
That box is your actual ignition switch. Your key moves a rod in the column, that moves a switch in that box. The position of the switch tells the car what to do (crank, acc etc). You can drop it (if memory serves) 2 torque screws and then slide the switch by hand through the modes if you want, bypass entirely the key switch. But unless you bypass pats it won't start without a key in the column switch.
