WHAT IS THIS!!!

CAN SOMEBODY TELL ME WHAT THIS. WHEN I BOUGHT THE TRUCK THE PIECE ON THE LEFT WAS MOUNTED ON THE OUTSIDE BUT I TUCKED IT BEHIND. I TOOK A CLOSER LOOK AT IT TODAY AND I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT IT IS. I PULLED THE CHIP OUT OF THE PIECE ON THE LEFT AND THE TRUCK WOULDN'T START WITH IT OUT AND THE LIGHT ON THE PIECE FLASHED. IF ANYONE HAS ANY IDEA WHAT THIS IS PLEASE LET ME KNOW. THANKS!

Sounds to me like it's some kind of security system if the truck wouldn't start without the chip.

Some Dodges had a factory setup like that only it was a bit more "factory" looking for an anti theft feature. My old roommate had one like that. I'm betting that is what it is.

I looked at a car for the wife with one of those several years ago, its dealer installed. the chip is the key, if you wanted to buy it, they would charge you for a chip that was bigger and easily removed, if you didn't want the security they would install a smaller chip and stuff it up under the dash, at no charge. it was like 300-400 bucks at the time.
