\"GM Accessories\" on Jimmy... remote starter?alarm?

Just got a 88 S15 Jimmy with the 4.3. Wouldnt start so we traced the problem down to a box that was under the dash that says "GM Accessories" on it. Wondering if maybe it was a remote starter or alarm at some time that wouldnt allow us to start the truck? What we are going to do it just bypass the box and it will start, but we are still curious as to what this is?

Any help would be appreciated!

That's an interesting one. I don't seem to recall anything with a GM Accessories box in the dash. For the most part all computers would be stuck in the kick panel or in the engine bay.

If it's something related to a remote start or alarm, then you might have to see if you can get more information about the box. Like a part number or something and call it in to see if it actually is not a stock part. If it's something like that then you can disable it and put it back to stock (probably going to be a messy job).

Do you have the original key for it? Did it have one of those silly chips on the key fob?
