I found this black box under my dash today while working on my A/C problem. It doesn't look like a factory item. When I disconnect it, the car won't start.

I don't know... curious if it's a TDI tuning box or something.... but I don't know what those look like, sorry. Did you happen to buy the bug used?
unfortunately, I did buy the bug used. The electrical system has been terrible since I bought it. Finding this black box that looks spliced into the harness concerns me greatly.

Doesn't look like a tuning box by any means...those are usually underhood. However, did you trace the connection at all? I'd like to know where it ends up, as that will definitely help me help you out more. :)

From here, it looks like an aftermarket alarm brain or remote start.

Thanks! I really appreciate the help. Now I just have to figure out how to remove this POJ.
I hate dealers. :mad:
I have a key based system that was installed by my dealer too. I only keept it because it's $250 to have the only known shop in the area to remove it and it lowers my insurance (and I'm under 25).
