    Unidentified electrical component

    Can anyone tell me what this electrical piece is a part of. It looks like a heat sink. It's located on the steering column under the removable cover. It has a white wire that has come unplugged. Kind of nervous about plugging it back in.

    I live in the Kansas City area. I have a 86 GMC. I had a 76 Silverado back in the day I liked a lot. This truck reminds me of it. This truck runs and drives pretty good for its age. I am in the process if fixing things and making a shop truck type build of it.
