I've recently come into ownership of a 55 Fiesta 1.4 Tdci, which has just come back from its service.
The mechanic asked me 'what sort of electronics you have under the hood because it seriously is looking ratty'.
He proceeded to pop the hood on my car and pull out the item in the photos.
He showed me that, if he bent the cable whilst the engine was running, the engine would rock wildy and even cut out.
Both of stood there laughing because neither of us have a clue what it is! There is certainly nothing written on it so I am hoping that some more in-the-know types on the board might be able to ID it.
It's pretty clear that a former owner has tried to mod this car as there the remains of a Jap lighting mod are left in the car (that's the thing you can see drawing power with the fuse on it in one of the pics).
Massive thanks to anyone who can tell me wtf this thing is! It looks like a serial cable (?) that plugs into it, but the other end disappears off to the engine and out of sight.
