What is this part?

315 Views 5 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  wilf
We discovered this part hanging down under the front plastic air dam. It has a small electrical plug with two wires attached to it. Luckly it is not damaged. I will attach a picture of it. It has a company name molded into the plastic. Appears to be made by Siemens. What is it for? Where is it mounted? Any help would be appreciated!

It is a TPMS (Tyre Pressure Monitoring System) "initiator". It receives electronic signals from the TPMS sensor in the wheel and transmits those signals. Two on the front of the car, one each side (duh!) and they fit into slots in the front plastic undertray. To remove the undertray (for whatever reason) they need to be pulled out of those slots and quite often whoever pulled them out forgets to put them back again. Drop the front undertray and you will see the empty slot for the pictured one, not difficult just time consuming due to the number of bolts and screws that need to be removed and then refitted.
