Huh??

Doc here,

Dick, I can name that tune is 5 notes....lol...

Do you have a Digi Cam?? Shoot a pic....

That's like saying ..... Doc...I have a rash on my butt...It's pink...Should I be worried? Should I have you look at it...? ya think It will match my flowered shorts??

Since were Not real sure if this is a Vehicle, or Starship from your Description..I will Take My Best GUESS(<------READ!) best guess....

It could be:
A Ferrite Bead filter from some long ago abandoned car stereo system..
A Sensor From some lost in space Alarm System
A Piezo Buzzer from some warning system long ago not working..
A Buzzer For something Like seat-belts...or Ignition key left in..
A Courtesy lamp holder.
A Switch for a courtesy lamp holder (like glove box)
The Back end of a Broken lighter receptacle..
A lost dash lamp
A Vacuum Switch for a heater/AC system that fell off..
================================================== =


HOWEVER IT MIGHT BE:

Lamp position switch For gear up/down & locked for landing gear wheel tractors...
Engine Sync Sensor for The left , Right and tail engines...
Stall warning horn/Stick shaker.
Terrain Alert horn
Piezo sensor for fuel flow gauges
Position Switch for the fuel transfer jack.
Cockpit Voice recorder mic
Cabin Smoke detector
Fire suppression sensor
Co~pilot Autopilot over ride switch
Co~pilot Com Transmit switch
"Please Fasten Seat-belts " sign switch..
=================================================

Obviously, If the Vehicle wasn't made by Boeing..The latter list won't apply..

And I'm really not trying to be an Educated Donkey..(Wise ***)

Especially to a New guy..but wanted to show you how little information you actually gave..

For better answers than "Homing Beacon For the Mother-ship" you really need to include the MOST information you can provide..and pictures to be more descriptive..


Doc

Did you see the episode of outer limits where the miniature flying saucer landed in the ladies attic and she smashed it to bits with a broom?

Outer limits Or Rod serling?

Doc here,

Yup, whatever that was Rod serling twilight zone or Outer limits ... Can't remember..(Endorphin misfires..I need a new skull cap and rotor..Ecm.., Dopamine gaskets..)

But yes..Think she was either Deaf and / Or dumb..or uneducated..but couldn't talk..lived in a cabin in the "Hills" somewhere...Chased the thing around the house with broom and Bread knife..Finally ended up nailing the thing in the yard ... as it radioed back..."Earth.. final transmission..This planet is inhabited by a race ferocious Giants...Do not attempt to rescue or send further explorations..Out..."

Geeze...I thought I was the only one that turned right at that signpost up ahead...LOL

Doc

a little more on my car

Its an 84 Z28 camaro 305 V8... besides a picture what other info would be helpful... Im pretty sure this is connected to the problem with my amp... its not getting power to my speakers anymore... i would think that would say a lot as to what the wire would do...seeing that most everything is working properly.... so it seems for now... i will try to get a pic as soon as possible but what would cause my amp to lose power

Something isn't connected to something else. Sounds simple enough, right?

Looking at your thread from 6/26 on squirrel damaged red/orange wire and this mystery you're hitting us with, I think you need to go to the guy who installed your stereo and have him tell you what you need to fix your problem.I know that I can't tell you what the winter inhabitants ate,but if you take him the pieces,I 'msure he can hook you up.
Hint for next winter:mothballs-I understand rodents can't stand 'em.
Good Luck,George
