Hi

It's part of an aftermarket sat nav and tracker system.

Not a Citroen part.

Thanks Arthur Dent. It's got loads of wires attached. Nothing to do with the original citroen electrics then? I have disconnected it.

Not Citroen.

have a look at them on ebay there seems to be quite a few and the pictures show the wires.

Be careful disconnecting aftermarket wires. Best to disconnect the battery so nothing gets shorted out in the C3 because its expensive to sort the electrics.
