Ariens snowblower electrical part

What is this strange electrical part on the old Ariens 924044 snowblower ? It's down in the drive mechanism chamber - on the right hand wall. It's a small cylinder about 1 1/8 " in diameter and maybe 3/4 " high. What is it called ? Is it part of the safety cutout circuit ? If so, I will just disconnect it.

Sgt Billko: This is probably Ariens part # 52401000 T module with connector. It is part of the electrical interlock system. Peter Hall Hooksett, NH
