I didn't ask for insurance advice, so there was no need for me to be specific about anything. If YOU feel the need to provide unsolicited advice, maybe YOU find out what kind of coverage is involved.

It's highly probable that you are mistaken with regards to the function of the silver box. What you have described sounds like the warning module. It's not a glow system component.
