Re: WTF is this crap under my dash???

could be some components for an alarm system and the push button is the valet button thing for the alarm. that's my guess. but i could be wrong.

Re: WTF is this crap under my dash???

the box is the brain of an alarm,then there are the relay boxes and the wire with the switch is the valet switch

Re: WTF is this crap under my dash???

That looks like an old Clifford alarm... the Valet switch is the same one that DEI uses on all of their alarms.

Do you "need" all of it? That is subjective.

I wouldn't just go and start cutting/ripping wires out. You MAY end up with more problems than it is worth. If anything, try and get a model, serial, or manf number off the black box. Once you identify what each wire is, you can safely start "terminating" them.
things like the rem door lock/Unlock
Siren,
Door trigger
etc, etc.

I would be most worried about tracking those wires for the relay. Not sure what they could have used it for... I have some ideas, like a factory overide? Light flasher, etc, etc.


Now, in some of the other pics, you have a green connector, and two blue-- those re factory harnesses that operate your cruise on/off, sun roof, and dash light brightness controller. What is wrong with these? You said you had to fix them?
