    Its nothing that came with the car from the factory. A good chance that its the tracker but its a bit of a daft place to put it. If it has a single thin black wire coming out of it and leads off somewhere under the carpet or covering then its defo a tracker. Also its a silver metal box and may have a round cable entry hole to it.
