Does anyone know what this green box is behind the cigarette lighter? Wiring is coming out of the
497894
loom alongside the 12V power for the cigarette lighter? I was thinking some sort of fuse but the 10A fuse for this circuit is under the dash.

Gen 3 2008 Outback H6.

US service manual wiring diagrams only show a 2-pole connection that service the front accessory socket, with no lighting, just socket power only. So that must be a JDM model feature for the New Zealand market.

Or someone is tracking you. Have any enemies? :)

JDM model i'm afraid, not the best at making enemies...that I know of ;)

While we are talking JDM, has anyone found a good workaround for installing an aftermarket head unit in JDM Gen 3 outbacks? With out spending a stupid amount on a new dash shroud.

Do you have keyless pushbutton start and/or proximity features in your car? If so, could it be one of the antennas? I've seen other world markets get this feature by 2008, but the US didn't have those options until 2013. I think another member from Aus or NZ found a similar 2-wire block under his cargo floor & it turned out to be a proximity antenna.

That's probably the tracking device. Multiple layers of tin foil will need to be used to disable...
