    That is a filter capacitor used to keep noise off the audio. You should be able to get from most radio shops and some parts stores. If you are not using a radio you dont need it. Even with a radio you might maybe get static but that is it. If you need any repairs and would like a free loaner vehicle please call Roy at 757-456-0722
