Question What is this electrical sensor/device under the battery?

...yes, a lot of battery area questions in the last 48 hours, my apologies but that's where I've been digging around lately

So, I noticed this electrical gizmo on the battery tray frame, up under the tray itself and wondered what it was?

So took a closer look at mine, and the plastic plug with three pins is terribly deteriorated, the plastic is crumbling. So I guess I'll keep an eye out for a replacement in better shape so it doesn't cause some sort of short in the port one day.

Yeah, I'll have to keep an eye out for one at a salvage yard that may be in better shape.
