Thanks, ***** ***** is built into the RKE module. It's located under the drivers side of the dash. I'll post the instructions for replacement and wiring colors so you can properly identify it below.

wiring diagram won't download. From the r&i page you sent I think I found it. But it is trapped by a large steel pan that is above the column. I think the whole upper dash has to come out to access it. Already have the column dropped.

I'll reupload the diagram below. Book time to swap it is around a half hour, so no dash removal. There should be some screws on the side of the metal plate.
