Strange looking, can't tell right away... maybe aftermarket alarm or remote start integration?

Take a baseline Auto Scan, unplug it, then take another and see what (if anything) changes.

Hi,

Bearing in mind

a) you are in the UK,
b) the unit seems to only have black wires going to it &
c) has anti-tamper fasteners...........

My money is on it being an aftermarket Immobiliser of theft alarm type component.

Peter.

Check the PR codes, maybe it was special purpose built vehicle like police, driving school or something else? Post the VIN, I'm curious now....
