What is this?


Recommended Posts

I was sleeving a wire the other day and realized that this metal thing that other wires ran to was heavily rusted and was wondering what it was. I am thinking some form of ground point but there are no other ground points like this in the rest of the engine bay that I can locate.Was hoping I could remove it and ground the wires to a less rusty surface as I am afraid that continued rust buildup will give me a ground problem, if indeed this is a wire ground.

I know the rig was supposed to come with an alarm but I never turned it on because I have sensor issues with the doors and assumed they would trip an activated alarm. When the rain ends I will try to trace the wires and then if possible remove the rusty cancer and tuck or ground the wires elsewhere. Thanks!
