Anyone know what these are on the windshield?

The Jeep used to be owned by a government official and has a planted spy device to listen, track and monitor any movement by the vehicle.
I think our phones do a pretty good job of that.

My 21 JLR has the cold weather group but does not have the advanced safety group. It does not have this wire connecting to the windshield, so I guess we can reason that it is indeed part of the advanced safety group.

I have the advanced safety and cold weather package. I am curious to see if I have it on mine now. Will look on lunch hour.

New for 2021 maybe?


I custom ordered and took possession of it 12 days ago with 4 miles on it, so pretty sure it came that way from the factory and the dealership didn't do any addons. I just found another thread on here with a photo of them, it was stated there that it's adaptive cruise related, if so I'd love to know in what sense.

I have adaptive cruise control on my 2019 Rubi, and those aren't on there...

EDIT - My bad, they are there after all, just smaller than I imagined and nearly impossible to see unless you are looking for them. :)

My 2021 Jeep has the safety group, advanced safety group, which I believe includes the adaptive cruise control, and it has the cold weather package. Mine does not look like this. Do as all a favour and go back to the dealer where there will be, most likely, a simple explanation for this non-factory contraption that you have here.

(Edited ... mine are outside the black box too ... I should have looked more closely, I thought they were behind the box)

It's what has been posted a few times ... they are the wires for the defroster if you have the adaptive cruise control. I have a 2019 JLUR with ACC (and cold weather, etc). From looking at the OP's pic when the windshield is folded down, it looks like the defroster is routed differently ... it looks like it covers a wider (either "improvement" or necessary for additional sensors (rain, hi-beam, etc).

Lane alert is actually housed in your taillights.

I have a 2021 wrangler JLU with adaptive cruise control and I don't have anything like that on mine. I'm curious as to what these are!

Same here. All safety add ons and no attachments on the windshield on my Rubicon.
Pretty sure that if you have BOTH the Advanced Safety Group/ACC AND the cold weather package, you get these. Just one or the other, no need for the defroster ahead of the sensor(s). IE If you don't have the Safety group, there's no need to defrost that area. And, if you have the Safety group but don't live is a cold weather area, you don't need the defroster.
FWIW

Weird so many different answers. I have cold weather but manual and no safety at all.
