  • Electrical: What is This?

    These things are right in front of the left tail light, in the trunk of P-Hawk. Anyone know what it is?

    They are high power resistors, for dropping voltage to some accessory. What they are doing in the trunk is anybody's guess.

    There is probably a thumb screw on the bottom of the curved bracket. Loosening that will allow you to remove them.

      Someone probably did not know 56 cars were 12 volt already, and thought these necessary.

        They don't appear to have any wires connected to them.

            Yes Rockne, no wires. So I figured it was a Bluetooth thing.

              These used to be sold as heater blower switches, mostly for aftermarket heaters. Hung under the dash, they provided infinite adjustment of blower motor speed.
              Now you can remove them and touch up your paintwork.
