I bought a 2011 Ram 1500 about 6 months ago. I removed the rubber liner for a small compartment in my center console. When I tried putting it back I realized it would not go down all the way and found a small piece with 2 wires connected to it coming through between the plastic. I am wondering what this is.

It's an LED light most likely aftermarket from an old security system.

  • Great, thanks. Should I just shove it back under the plastic then? Or cut it off, or something else?

  • @l3v You could see where it goes, they may not have taken the alarm system out. Nothing wrong with just putting it back where it was either. Commented Dec 16, 2013 at 22:33

    I think it's an indicator light for the lock on the secret compartment. Or the "armed" light for the passenger ejector seat.
