Black object

There is a small black object on the right side, but separate of my rear view mirror in my 2015 TH. I went to the dealer today and the salesmen could not tell me what it was. Dose anyone know what it is?

Re: Black object

Auto rain sensing sensor for windshield wipers. If you have Lane departure, auto on lights, auto dim bright lights, another sensor with camera and daylight sensor, on the drivers side(US) of rear view mirror.

Yes they are different for Trail Hawk and limited. So you say you don't have auto on rain wipers? If you don't then I too am clueless.

Re: Black object

This is a swing in the dark...

Could it be a housing for the satellite antenna or the cell antenna?

Re: Black object

If he has auto dimming headlights, that's where the sensor is located.

I think you nailed, mine is on the left side(US) of rear view mirror, not right side.

I have read elsewhere there are 14 different windshields for our KL Cherokee for the different options and sound deadening.
