Hi everyone, I need a bit of help. Does anyone one know what the 6volt battery and the silver box under the driver's side carpet is for ? The box is a Motorola so I'm assuming its either alarm or radio related and that its a factory fitted component as its protected by the white plastic mesh box. The reason for asking is that both battery terminals have corroded and dropped off the battery and the acid has leached out causing corrosion to the immediate area. The rust I can deal with as its only minor, but I would like to know what the silver box does. I hoping that its not anything major connected with the overall function of the car.
There is additional confusion in that there is a similar box and battery installed behind the driver's seat back and I've traced the wires and they go to the dealer fitted alarm. Thanks to everyone in advance for any help you may provide.
