    That is a relay and it looks a though it's been very HOT. Can't actually tell what it's for but I'm sure somebody else on here will tell you exactly what it's for.

    That's for the water in fuel light. Although I have no idea how it would have gotten that hot. It won't affect the engine at all though. My harness was so hacked up I removed mine.
