What is this!

Anybody know what this is.....I found it laying in the bottom next to the drivers side head light compartment. It looks as if it was double sided taped to the frame but came off.

It could be a motion/impact sensor for a aftermarket alarm system. The arrow on one side and being double sided taped on makes me think thats what it is.

It just runs up to the fire wall and disappears there. I am thinking its part of a aftermarket alarm too, but was concerned it was some part of the tire pressure system or accelerometer sensor for the g-force system that my car doesnt have as far as i know.....

Definitely nothing to do with the TPMS system. Do you have an aftermarket alarm?

Not that I am aware of. If it did it must be bypassed now because I don't have anything but the original key fob. I will pull the drivers side lower console cover to see if I can find what its running to this weekend.

RACING...Because with baseball, football, basketball, tennis, and golf, you only need one ball

I used to think that I had learned patience as I got older. Then I realized that I just didn't give a shit
