    Wiring questions (pics added)

    I am re-assembling my dash after about 1.5 years so some things aren't real fresh in my mind.

    There is a plastic box with 2 wires coming out one side and it looks like there should have been two wires going in the other side. The box is 1 inch tall by 1 inch deep by 1 and 3/4 wide. Inside of the box the wires are soldered to a piece of copper. I only have one wire going in the one side and it goes to the fuse panel and is connected to a spade in the spot labeled ignition unfused. this is on the lower right of the fuse panel. I am wondering if this was the power for the stereo? Thanks.

    Did I mention I hate wiring. I am trying to get everything working again and then I will probably just replace the harness.

    That to me looks like the power and ground that came off an aftermarket stereo. You are correct in thinking there should be 2 wires coming out of both sides of the box.....1 power and 1 ground on each side

    Poss. a relay of some sorts?
    All I know is that our Blazers never had anything like that installed from the factory.
    Sorry I can't provide more info.

    Hopefully someone else can I.D. this mystery box!

    Duno:confused:

    I would just chuck it and move on. I riped alot of unused wires and inline fuses from under my dash when I did my gage cluster. It is amazing how much collects under there over the years and thru the different owners.

    Yep that's an old stereo connection. I think it was used to dampen voltage spikes(not positive). Looks like your havin some fun now:D
