Whatever I'm doing I'm not find the SIM card in my car. I removed the glove box (and see the white computer behind it. I removed the plasic below the glove box and still doens't find the SIM card, or a modem. There is anywhere else that it may be hidden there?

I'm sure that I have a SIM card, I just don't know where is it.

(Mitubishi outlander 2018 instyle) There is any more info that I can provide that let you better understand?

    Please respond to the comment posted above by @RoryAlsop. Why do you think your vehicle has a removable SIM? Jun 14 at 2:16

    Both my wife's Honda Accord and my VW Jetta display the same symbols (including one for battery state of charge) when linked (either by Bluetooth or cable) to our cell phones. These displays go away when the phone is disconnected. Thus, I've always assumed that they show the phone's connectivity, not the car's. Jun 14 at 14:50

The most likely location of the sim would be in the head unit itself. Looking at the back of the head unit, there doesn't appear to be a sim slot. They probably chose to hide it away so the end user can't replace it. At least, you can't replace it easily.

If you're handy with tools and not afraid of opening things up, I'd remove the head unit and open it up. If the sim card is in there you'll find it in a slot on the circuit board.
