My idea for this thread is that people can post a picture of some unidentified car part (UCP) as well as a picture of it and maybe someone smart will come along and tell us. Please also include what kind of car you have: EX/LX/DX, Coupe/Sedan, Engine, Year

I'll Start
The Car is a 1998 Accord LX Sedan with the F23A1 engine

1. This thing is mounted on the top of my trunk and appears to have a coil inside




2. This little black box is clipped to the back of the left most taillight

Where is that sensor located? I'd be interested to see what kind of shape mine's in. Mine is still the original sensor from October of 1997

right behind the engine near the oil sensor/ little but above the oil filter, be careful touching it as it might crumble from one poke lol.

Not that I'm aware of. I have tried to find a way to get better reception as well. I think the problem is the "antenna" is actually the rear windshield. It has some things that look like the rear defrost but they are the "antenna". If you want better reception you need to install an aftermarket antenna.
