    WTF is this "mystery" box?

    I can't seem to find any mention of it in my FSM. Mine is unplugged, with tape over both connections (box, harness). I've looked at 4 other WRXs (02-03) and all have had this box plugged in. WTF is it, and why would mine be in this "taped off" fashion? The tape is dark gray in color, almost a charcoal color, and resembles duct tape, but not exactly...

    It's the silver thing in the red box...

    I think that's the resistor pack for the DRL's.

    One way to disable DRL operation is to pull out the connectors. It sounds like that's what's been done on your car.

    I opted for the other method of DRL-delete which involves pulling a connector from behind the glove box.
