Under the Rear Right Passenger Seat there is a well with a relay and two "units" as shown on the picture the left one shown in full in the picture is the Starttronic.

It has a small forest of signal gauge wires going I know not where. It apparently works on 433 MHz.
Is marked as follows

G 015
3 16B

Starttronic
Oberdorf 4
D 7612
Hofster?

Does any body know anything about this unit? There is virtually nothing to be found by Internet searching.

My plan is probably to remove it but I like to know what I can before diving in.

Thanks,

Jim

No idea but it sounds like an alarm add-on module for remote starting the car.

That looks like an old after market alarm or remote door locking system. It was most likely installed in that location because of the proximity of the door lock pump. You would have to investigate the connections if you wish to remove the unit. Depending on the unit and the original installer blind removal of this system can affect the operation of: door locks, windows, lights, engine starting, etc.
