Default What is this?

Can someone tell me what this is, and why someone would have run a constant power line to pin C on it? (The big orange wire) Its located in the glove box, next to the hidden fuse panel..





I know my door locks aren't working right now, and I can hear something click when I try to trigger them, along with my power seats, and again I can hear something click when I press any of the buttons..

um...thats definitly a relay....
I've otften wondered what its for. but the clicking sound might be your keyless entry. if you hear a click richt above where the glove box is, you have it. But that relay might have somthing to do with it.

Hmm... ok, so, would those cause my door locks to not work, or would it be something else? I can hear the something click when I push the un/lock buttons... didn't try it with that in my hands...

mine had two right next to each other, clipped to the bottom of the relay box.....check around real good for any loose wires, he may had taken out the relay and tucked the wires up somewhere...look around up in there real good
