Looks kind of like an aerial plug. Maybe your car at some point had a two-unit Becker of Blaupunkt radio/stereo with the power-unit placed in the foot-well?

it does look like an aerial plug. Im thinking a cb radio. I dont know if mercedes ever did this but jags used to have on their stock radios the ability to listen to cb chatter.

huh, thats odd. I dont recall anyone mentioning this having a CB radio in it. I figured it was for the cig lighter, security system, or somthing like that. Anyway thanks for the thoughts and Sidney shut up. I know who you are hah....

I'll bet that's and old style cell-phone antenna plug. In both my BMW and Benz I found the same thing, with electronic components, right after I bought them. The old style cell-phones had a mounted handset attached to a base unit that was hidden away. To make sure, I'd follow the wire and see where it goes...

The alarm is right under where that wire is - under a false panel that is inclined right where your feet would rest. Pull up the padding and at the bottom center of the panel you'll see a square opening where a hold down nut is located. Remove the nut and the whole panel lifts out. On the left is two modules that is the alarm system (Becker). Disconnect the two connectors and the alarm is disabled.

Hope this helps and let us know what you find.

well i dont think i am getting to that security system any soon, that padding seems in there pretty good and the only way I see to get to it is take off that bottom thing which I tried and it only cracked and crumbled so i didnt mess with it...Any other ideas?

I'll trace that wire later its a bit cold outside..

I did find a hole in my driver's side seat in the leather [:(!] That will cost me to get it fix, then again the whole interior need some leather work here and there [retucks here--replace there].

I still have the original medkit from 82 haha
