What's under my back seat?

I was cleaning the carpet under the back seat of my '12 SRT8. I found a round black rubber or plastic disk, about 6-8" in diameter, about 1/4" thick, with insulation material attached to one side. The disk is attached to the seat (or floor?) by a plastic piece moulded to the disk. It looks like some sort of cover. The disk is located under the middle of the back seat and is lying on top of the carpet. I can't figure out what it is or what it does.

Does anyone have an idea what this insulated round piece of rubber/plastic is?

Here's a pic;

I am not sure on our rides, but most cars have them to access the fuel tank sender unit or fuel pump.

I was thinking it might be something like that.

Could someone have a look under their back seat & see if this thing should be under the carpet?

That cover covers up the influx capacitor that gives our SRT Jeeps that beastly off the line launches.

Re: What's under my back seat?

Thanks for the reply. I'll see if I can pop this thing under the carpet.

I'll try to remember to ask the dealer what it is at my next visit.

Re: What's under my back seat?

Isn't there a hole in the carpet? Seems to me if you ever had to access that port, the way it is would make it easy.

I haven't really had a close look at what's there. The lighter colored insulation caught my eye, and i stuck my camera under the seat to see what it was. I'll spend some time and see it the disk just pops down in place to cover an opening, or if it actually goes under the carpet.

I will take a look at mine here right away and see if I can see anything.
