    I believe it's where all the gadgets are kept to make your auto wipers and auto high beams work.

    I didn't think the Hellcats had the auto high beams or auto sensing wipers?

    It looks as if a camera or sensor were inside. Maybe the crash warning? I do not have a clue !! haha

    Yeah, the rain sensors are awesome. You just turn them on low and they go as they need to. Fast, slow, whatever it needs. The box had a sensor in it

    Make sure that auto sensing wipers and high beams are enabled on your u connect settings.

    Once active you high beams must be in the ON position and your wipers turned on to the first setting. They will now function when the sensors are activated.

    I don't know why my statement that I didn't think the Hellcats had them is funny, but okay. LOL. I seriously thought I read on here that they did not have the technology group, and being as I'm stuck with only a VON........anyway.

    Both features are awesome. I use them all them time on my Ram. The delay setting controls sensitivity rather than frequency. The auto high beams are great on rural roads.

    On the Ram, I was told that box was only the auto high beams. They said the sensor for the wipers was elsewhere, but I don't remember where they said.

    The hellcat has the auto highbeam option , this is the camera looking module on the mirror it also has humidity and rain sensor. What it doesn't have is the ACC auto cruise control module camera in the lower section of the front fascia.

    I haven't used the high beam sensor but I use the rain sensor all the time! It is really great. I never had that, a heated steering wheel, back up camera, or sensors in mirrors for bikes and cars in lanes next to you. I now am spoiled with them and hate driving anything that doesn't have those. Especially heated steering wheel!:D
