Still finding things

I have been going through my truck for the last 6 months and I am still finding things that I can't identify. Today's find is what looks like a large ignition condenser attached to my e-brake mounting bracket under the dash right next to the ignition switch. The lead coming off of it is not attached to anything.

Anyone know what this might be ? I can't find it on any of my wiring diagrams .
Thanks, Mark

Sounds like some kind of foreign object to me.

Great....now I have UFO's in my truck.

The critter mounts with an ear off of the case, just like a condenser would. The lead comes off the other end, is just long enough to reach the ignition switch, and terminates with a single eye that would just fit over the studs on the back of the switch. It's 1/2" in diameter and 2" or so long.

Might just be a device to take the engine noise out of the radio like they used in the 70's.

Maybe your brakes have noise in them!

They use to be mounted on the alternator.

I hadn't thought of a noise supressor. Next time I have the dash open I'm going to remove it and check it for #'s or something to identify it by.
Thanks, Mark
