What is this thing?

This came in my 93 Cherokee Country. Does anyone know what it is? Could it be for factory keyless entry? I do have power everything.

Re: What is this thing?

My '95 has that as well. so far no one can tell me what it does/is either. looks like it could be one of those old floating ball compasses, but I know its not, it has a bunch of little wires going to it.

My '98 Camero had a similar piece hanging on the bottom of thevrear view mirror. I seem to remember it being some type of light sensor...maybe related to high beams?

Re: What is this thing?

Could it be an infrared sensor for alarm or airco?

It's a receiver for an infrared remote. The old school keyless entry remotes used infrared like a tv remote. It had to be able to see the infrared light.
