That'* an electonic component that came with the car. Electrical.
Please make an effort to read the Forum descriptions listed under each heading on the Forum page.

The first thing to do for your problem is to make sure you have no corrosion on the reciever. It'* located under the rear deck in the trunk. Second is to determine if you have aftermarket rear speakers (tell us one way or another). The last thing is to make sure you don't have any large steel/magnetic objects in the trunk.

Moving to Everything Electrical and Electronic.
