    It's not clear what you are referring to Mike.

    If it's the box connected using the white block connector then it isn't an OEM job so just disconnect if you're worried and see what doesn't work !

    can somebody tell me what this is?

    I guess the only way to find out is either trace them back or as mike foster says. At first my heart raced thinking it was a Hotwire bodge up by previous owner haha

    It's probably an ignition source and an earth...

    My thoughts are a tracker or handsfree kit? More likely a handsfree kit.

    I'd put my money on TDI140 browsing the thread on a phone or tablet and scrolling through the thread hitting the dislike accidentally. It's in a prime position for accidental pressing when touch screen scrolling.....
