    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 !

    Looks like it could be an aftermarket alarm loom

    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

    Why would it have a tap off to the diagnostic port though.......very strange.

    TDI140 can you please tell me why you clicked 'Dislike' for post #2 ?

    I don't appreciated dislikes at the best of times but especially for no apparent reason !

    You may, of course have hit the wrong button !

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

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

    If its a hands free kit, its no longer in the car, ill have to do a Bluetooth search or something

    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.....
