What is this hole (maybe some kind of sensor?)

Asked by Oct 12, 2016 at 05:11 PM about the 2011 Ford Focus

Question type: General

What is this?

This is some kind of sensor, I think. But it makes a noise sometimes. So I put tape over it. Or sometimes, I put my finger into it to stop a motor in the sensor, so the noise stop temporally.

A noise really irritates me.

Looks like an in car temperature sensor for an automatic climate control system (just a guess based on what I've seen on other vehicles). HTH. -Jim

That is a dual purpose sensor. It can monitor the temperature in the car for cooling purposes and also allows the nsa to listen in on your conversations. The tape was a good idea
