Default Thing in front of temperature gauge?

no idea what this is, all it says on it is towards user with an arrow pointing towards a slit in the front of it. it sticks out of the side of the gauge cluster interior, by the glass

Appears to be a microphone for a handsfree set, aftermarket equipment more than likely.

That little thingy is obviously not a factory item and one way to find out where it goes is either pull out the instrument cluster to trace where this device connects to or feel under the instrument panel for this wire and follow it to wherever it goes. If you find the other end not connected to anything then removing or cutting it off will declutter things.

Darn, was hoping it was a number that might give a clue to manufacturer.
If there isn't another set of buttons to control the hands free system, either it was removed or a GM LAN interface was used that allows the steering wheel controls to run the hands free.
If you remove the kick panel under the instrument panel I think you'll find 1 or 2 boxes depending on the setup. One may be a GM LAN interface. The other should be the Hands free interface itself that the mic plugs in to. If you can get the model numbers and post them I might be able to find the instructions.
I also found these GM instructions to pair, didn't work for mine since I don't have Bluetooth. Worth a try...
