So here's the story. (Go to the next paragraph if you just want to identify the part, but I have some other problems that need some help in this paragraph.) My taillights, driver side marker light, and dash lights all worked sometimes, and not other times. This has been going on for about a month now, so my dad and I started working on finding the problem tonight. Well, as we were checking wires and grounds my dad took a bunch of ground wires and touched them to what he thought was a ground wire in the fuse box. Turns out it was the positive side of the 60Amp Fusible Link.
A quick pop, and the horn just stayed on. Headlights also. Radio doesn't work either. Now here is where it gets weird. When the headlight switch was on the 'on' position, there was a clicking sound coming from the radio/ecu area behind the dash. At first we thought the ECU was toast, as disconnecting the large connector on that made the clicking stop. Finally, we found the real reason for the clicking. Some weird bronze box right next to the ECU, on the passenger side.
Made by Imasen, it is stamped with 'E8T08474' and '5213'. Most information I found was that Imasen makes 'seat' products for mitsubishi.
Below are some pictures of this thing. Any help would be appreciated, anyone know what this is?
P.S. Sometimes my horn just stays on now, along with the headlights (with the switch off). I'm going outside to check it out now, but anyone have this happen before?
-Thanks in advance.
