What is this ?

I have a 97 GT Convert and I was having trouble with it starting turned out to be the clutch safety switch and now have replaced it. While under the dash I found that someone had put what looks to me as a tuner or scanner port thingie in the car before I purchased it. I would like to know what the heck it is. Anyone know what this is ?

Here are the unit and also the port or plug in. There are 2 wires that power the unit one red and one yellow.

That's an anti theft device. Should be coupled with a small speaker under the hood for the optional alarm sound when your car is being stolen. Most often just anti theft.

Remove the small card in the slot and your car will not start.

Thanks I wasn't 100% sure. I took it out today. I started having issues again with the car not starting and decided to just take it out. Now I have no problem with it starting. I guess this is part of the joys in buying a used car that someone else has had their fingers into. Thanks again
