I dont know what this thing is. It is a small black dome in the center of my overhead console. It is about 1 inch in diameter and the guy at the Jeep Dealership didnt know what it is either. I drive a 95 Grand Cherokee Laredo. I hope someone can help me with this. I will try and add a picture here.

More than likely it is for automatic headlights, when the light is lost to it they will turn on. It looks similar to other vehicles with them.

If it was at the front end of the console near the window I would agree but it is at the other end right before the rear seats.

i think it is for keyless locks, it is where the transmitter signal goes. don't quote me for sure but i know the older xj's had the same style.

they would not put it right up against the windshield, to many variables there for it to deal with. But I agree with above it could be that too.

Kelly I would like to point out to you that you have a newer vehicle made by ford and we are talking about a little older vehicle made by a different company. Its how Jeep made there keyless entry system. As time went on they found a way to hide the little sensor signal thing. yes the little dome thing is the keyless intry signal deal Oz.

Yup, Old school keyless entry receiver. But if you'd like, I could tell you that is a small camera that is part of a vast conspiracy.

Ok so we've finally established that the dome thingy is a reciever for the keyless entry that doubles as a goverment monitored secret camera. Or maybe its a mind control device! Or a satelite tracking system! Because you know the goverment wants to secretlt rack us after theyve controlled our minds and then take candid photos that they post on-line so that other people of the world will see just what you did that night with the goat you "found" .....

hahahaha lmao at the "government conspiracy." It is actually the receiver for the keyless entry. The older ZJs used an infrared signal just like your tv remote, while the newer ones went to radio frequency. with the IR remote you actually had to point it at the vehicle to get it to work(line of sight.) but I agree. as a former mechanic on the u-2s, they CAN see you. :nono: ...so give the man back his goat.
