TJ what\'s the black box under battery tray ?

I started parting out my wrecked TJ today and I was wondering what is that black plastic box under the battery tray, that has some kind of a small vacuum (?) line going in ?

Thanks for your help

I've never opened the hood of a TJ, but I recall reading somewhere they have a battery temperature sensor... might be that.

Thanks for your reply... YES there is a sensor with two wires coming out of it, that is under the battery, tied into the battery tray, so I guess that is your bat.temp.sensor...AND guess what I was wandering what was that thing was too...It seems so wierd for CJ guy like me ...but I was to lazy to ask for that one also !

Thanks
