2014 Rear Hatch - What is this?

I was cleaning up the new Jeep today and came across this little device tucked up under the rear spoiler on the rear hatch. It is located just to the right of the brake light above the rear window. I can't tell if it a sensor of some sort or maybe the access point, in event of battery failure.

Isnt that the squirter for the rear washer?
Have someone stand right under it and twist the rear wiper switch to see

Play a joke on someone, tell them it's the back up camera and you want them to stick their face as close to it as possible to see if it focuses.

While the most tempting candidate is my wife, I like peace at home too much to try that. I'll brainstorm for better victims...

Re: 2014 Rear Hatch - What is this?

You should really change that to plain water then too, chemicals in the eyes.....but yeah, would be funny. Get the video camera set up too so you have a chance at winning 10K on AFV.

I have heard that the wiper comes on first and scares them so they are too far away by the time it gets to the nozzle.
